The latest HSE figures show there are 261 patients in hospital with the virus.

That includes 66 patients in intensive care.

Earlier, HSE CEO Paul Reid says the number of COVID-19 patients in hospital has fallen in recent days.

However, he said there has been a rise in ICU figures - noting that there’s now a “hugely disproportionate number of unvaccinated patients”.
