COVID-19 rates are continuing to rise across Dublin, latest figures show.

The current 14 day incidence rate in the county is now at 138 per 100,000 - compared to 104 a week ago.

Dublin North-West - which includes areas such as Blanchardstown, Finglas and Castleknock - continues to have the highest rate in the county, having now surpassed 200 cases per 100,000.

That compares to 152.2 a week ago, and represents 425 positive cases identified in the area over the past two weeks.

However, the rate has continued to rise in all parts of the county - with the rate now surpassing 150 in Dublin South East and Dublin North Central.

Any impact from the level three restrictions introduced for Dublin on Friday are unlikely to be seen until at least next week, due to the incubation period for the virus.

Meanwhile, nationwide figures show County Louth has become the second county to see its two-week COVID-19 incidence rate rise above 100.
