There have been 453 new cases of coronavirus in Ireland.

NPHET says no further COVID-19 related deaths have been reported today.

Today's figures mean the total number of cases since the pandemic began has now passed 250,000.

The five-day moving average of new cases is now 489, compared to 472 yesterday.

As of this morning, there were 129 patients being treated in Irish hospitals for confirmed cases of COVID-19 - including 40 in ICU.

Figures up to Saturday show 1.59 million COVID-19 vaccine doses had been administered - including 1.14 million first doses.

Officials are this week set to finalise a revised vaccine plan, taking into account recent advice from NIAC about the use of the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson jabs.

Vaccine registration for those aged 59 will open tomorrow, as the rollout starts to expand to all over-50s.
