Meanwhile the Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan said the recent surge in infections in death is likely to continue.

"What we can do today, out of respect of those who have lost their lives and those currently in hospital or ICU - and those caring for them - is to hold firm and stay home."

His Deputy, Dr Ronan Glynn highlighted the age impacted by the virus.
