There have been 29 more coronavirus-related deaths in Ireland.
Latest figures show 137 new cases have also been confirmed here.
It brings the death toll up to 1,403, while there are 22,385 confirmed cases.
Data of all cases as of midnight on Tuesday reveals:
- 57% are women and 43% are men
- The median age of confirmed cases is 49 years
- 2,891 cases (13%) have been hospitalised
- Of those hospitalised, 376 cases have been admitted to ICU
- 6,498 cases are associated with healthcare workers
Dublin has the highest number of cases at 10,840 (49% of all cases), followed by Kildare with 1,302 cases (6%) and then Cork with 1,197 cases (5%).
Of those for whom transmission status is known community transmission accounts for 62%, close contact is 35% and travel abroad accounts for 3%.
Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, said: "The reproduction number is between 0.5 -0.6.
"We have achieved our goal of suppressing the spread of the disease - it was not easy for anyone but there is no question that our collective effort has saved lives.
"Now we look to the pattern of COVID-19 going forward, as we attempt to ease restrictions.
"These weeks are just as important as the first weeks of our response.
"Our behaviours are crucial in maintaining our progress and keeping the reproduction number below 1."
Professor Philip Nolan, Chair of the NPHET Advisory Group, added: "The number of ICU admissions, new cases and deaths is now falling and has been for over a week.
"This is driven by a reduction of transmission of the virus in the community and reinforces the importance of our behaviours going forward."
Health Minister Simon Harris earlier told the Dáil the reproductive rate of the virus had fallen further.
He said the overall rate is now considered 'stable', at around 0.5.
While modelling suggested admissions to hospitals and Intensive Care Units (ICUs) have also dropped.
These have both halved in the last week, Minister Harris said.
"Last week hospital admissions were around 40 a day - whereas this week, I'm told by the modelling that it's around 20 a day".
"And last week ICU admissions were around four to six a day, whereas the modelling now tells me it's around two a day this week".
