The Department of Health has confirmed that 581 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Ireland today.
There are currently 52 people being treated in hospital for the virus.
There are 16 patients in intensive care, an increase of one person compared to yesterday.
The HSE continue to be affected by the recent cyberattack and the daily case figure “may change due to future data review, validation and update.”
The five-day moving average in Ireland has risen to 545, compared to 442 this day last week.
The 14-day incidence rate per 100,000 of the population now stands at 137, while the seven-day moving average is 522.
It comes as more than 55% of the adult population in Ireland are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the CEO of the HSE.
Paul Reid said that 70% of adults have had at least one dose of the inoculation, adding that there is "a big challenge ahead" with the virus.
There have been 275,000 doses of the vaccine administered so far this week.
Meanwhile, the President of the European Commission said the EU has reached its target on COVID-19 deliveries.
Ursula von der Leyen said enough doses of the jab have been delivered to vaccinate 70% of adults across the member states against the virus.
She also confirmed that around 500 doses would be distributed across the EU by Sunday.
