COVID-19 figures

A further nine people with COVID-19 have died in the Republic.

37 number of new cases have been confirmed.

It brings the total number of deaths to 1615 - the total number of confirmed cases now stands at 24,735.

It comes as Nursing Homes Ireland says residents were left isolated by the state in the early days of the COVID crisis.

The Dáil's COVID-19 committee has heard about the situation in nursing homes, with Tadhg Daly from Nursing Homes Ireland strongly critical of the government's initial response:

More than 500 pages of correspondence between the Department of Health and Nursing Homes Ireland was delivered to TDs at 9.30am this morning ahead of a committee meeting that started at 11am.

Among the documents it emerged one nursing home had to use painters overalls and goggles in lieu of personal protective equipment.

Nursing Homes Ireland says more should have been directed to nursing homes instead of entirely to acute hospitals.
