Redouble our efforts
Meanwhile, the HSE's Chief Clinical Officer says the potential for an "apartheid society" can be avoided if people redouble their efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Dr Colm Henry also warned that Ireland must avoid an "overwhelmed" hospital system this winter.
Speaking on Newstalk's On The Record with Gavan Reilly programme today, said we should increase our efforts so "we can protect older people, and not create some sort of apartheid society when there's one set of rules for older people and one set of rules for younger people".
He said: "There have been 48 today with six patients in ICU and a small but steady increase in the number of older people and this is a reminder of how transmissible this virus is."
He added that "we cannot face an overwhelmed hospital system and we cannot face levels of congestion in our emergency departments like we saw in previous years".
