Health officials are reporting a further 358 Covid-19 cases.
There’s no notification of any more Covid-related deaths.
And after the recent cyber attacks on the HSE and Department of Health there’s no county-by-county breakdown of the figures.
But there’s fears the infections rate are continuing to grow in Carlow and Kilkenny.

Anyone with symptoms can go directly to the test centres or talk to their GP.
But people are being asked not to go to the hospital except for appointments and emergencies.
