The remaining 25 cases are in Carlow, Cavan, Cork, Donegal, Galway, Kerry, Kilkenny, Limerick, Louth, Meath, Monaghan and Wicklow.

Dr Ronan Glynn, Acting Chief Medical Officer, said: "While the number of cases reported each day remains high, the situation nationally has remained relatively stable over the past week.

"However, we have seen cases in 25 of the 26 counties over the past 14 days - including 473 cases in Dublin, 332 in Kildare, 120 in Tipperary, 84 in Limerick, 37 in Clare and 36 in Meath and Kilkenny.

"Measures introduced last week would not be expected to impact on the trajectory of the disease until early next week.

"In the meantime, we must continue to follow public health advice: reduce social contacts and avoid crowds, physically distance, wear face coverings and wash hands regularly."
