The Department of Health has been notified of an additional 1,586 Covid-19 cases today.


This is an increase 527 on yesterday's figure.


298 patients are in hospital with virus - 56 of which are in ICU.


This comes as the Chief Medical Officer is urging people to continue following public health advice as we move into the winter months.


Measures include wearing masks while in retail or hospitality situations and on public transport, and staying at home if you have cold-like symptoms.


Dr Holohan says as people spend more times indoors it's important to stay mindful of public health measures:


"we are heading into that time of the year where being out and about all of the time is a bit more difficult.


"The weather isn't going to be as good, and it's important that we're really mindful of the kinds of risks that are important for us to try and avoid.


"So as we meet up indoors we need to try to be conscious of the extra measures we can take to protect ourselves."
