There have been 1,828 new cases of COVID-19 reported in Ireland on Saturday.

The latest available figures show there are 198 patients in hospital with the virus - 33 of these are in ICU.


The Department of Health says the case numbers may change due to a future data update.


It brings the five-day moving average of new cases to 1,486.


People who have yet to receive a first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine are being encouraged to attend a walk-in vaccination clinic this weekend.


There are over 20 in operation around the country today, with a similar number taking place tomorrow.


Anyone over the age of 16 can walk in and get a Pfizer dose - the head of the HSE, Paul Reid, says an 87 year old woman is the oldest person to attend a clinic so far.
