As of this morning, there were 127 patients being treated in Irish hospitals for confirmed cases of COVID-19 - including 41 in ICU.

It comes as officials say over 30% of adults in the country will have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the day.

Over 44,000 doses were administered on Friday - a daily record.

Officials say the rollout will now ramp up further - with 220,000 to 240,000 doses expected to be administered over the course of the coming week.
