There are 384 people currently in hospital with the virus, including 59 who are in ICU.

Today's figures come on the same day as a significant easing of remaining COVID-19 restrictions.

Organised indoor events and mass gatherings can now take place, with attendance set at 60% of the venue capacity - provided all attendees are immune, vaccinated or accompanied minors.

There's a larger capacity limit of 75% on outdoor events and mass gatherings.

However, crowds will have to remain seated at indoor gigs for now.
