There have been 829 new cases of coronavirus in Ireland and six additional related deaths.
The Health Protection Surveillance Centre (HPSC) says five of these deaths occurred in February, and one happened in January.
The median age of those who died was 84 years, and the age range was between 75 to 95 years.
There has been a total of 3,687 COVID-19 related deaths in Ireland and 204,397 confirmed cases.
This includes the denotification of five deaths.
Of the cases notified on Monday:
- 401 are men / 426 are women
- 63% are under 45 years of age
- The median age is 35 years old
There are 386 cases in Dublin, 39 in Meath, 36 in Cork, 35 in Kildare and 32 in Louth.
The remaining 301 cases are spread across 20 other counties.
As of 8.00am, 1,212 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised - of which 176 are in ICU.
There have been 39 additional hospitalisations in the past 24 hours.
While as of February 5th, 230,776 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Ireland.
Some 151,212 people have received their first dose, while 79,554 have received a second dose.
Chair of NPHET's Modelling Advisory Group, Professor Philip Nolan, says admissions to hospital are falling.
"1,281 on average over the last seven days, 1,212 today - that's down from a peak of a little bit over 2,000.
"So we're looking at 60% of the numbers in hospital this week as compared to the peak - and importantly the number of admissions per day declining.
"We're below 60 on average over the last seven days, and 39 new confirmed cases this morning."
And he says the country is on course to report as few as 200 new cases per day by the end of the month.
"If we continue to act as a society for the next three or four weeks, the way we have been acting for the last five weeks, then yes we're still on track".
"It's important not to become disheartened by the fact that progress appears to be slower as you're going down that exponential decline".
