There have been 1,627 new cases of Covid-19 reported in Ireland today.

This is a decrease of 429 cases on yesterday's figures.

415 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised, of whom 70 are in ICU.

In a statement, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ronan Glynn said 50 people are being admitted per day to Irish hospitals with the virus up from 35 per day at the end of September

"Unfortunately, we have seen increases across key indicators of COVID-19 right across the country and the growth rate of the epidemic has accelerated in recent days," said Dr Glynn.

According to the Deputy CMO, there is an increase in incidence across all age groups, including older people.

"All indicators of COVID-19 are pointing towards a deteriorating disease trajectory nationally," he said.

The national incidence is now 415 cases per 100,000 of the population.

Dr Glynn also warned breakthrough infections in vaccinated people is more likely when the incidence rate of the disease is high.
