There were 212 COVID-19 patients hospitalised as of this morning, including 43 in ICU.

Commenting on today's figures, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronan Glynn said: “Anyone exposed to COVID-19 over the Easter weekend will now be at their most infectious.

"Please isolate and contact your GP to arrange a test if you have any symptoms of COVID-19."

Four new walk-in testing centres are opening this weekend for people who don't have symptoms of the virus, as part of efforts to track down asymptomatic cases in the community.
