A further 2,029 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.

 

The five-day moving average of new cases is now 1,907.

 

CMO Dr Tony Holohan said there are now more than 500 cases per 100,000 population.

 

He said: “As we come into the bank holiday weekend, take particular care with the three Cs – crowded places with many people nearby, close contact settings - especially where people may not be vaccinated, and confined and enclosed spaces with poor ventilation.

 

"It is important that we continue to follow public health advice as we know vaccination alone, even at very high levels of uptake, will not be sufficient to achieve suppression of the disease."

 

The latest HSE figures show there are 448 patients in Irish hospitals with COVID, down from 464 yesterday.

 

The number of patients in ICU has risen slightly to 88, compared to 86 yesterday.
