CMO Says Easing of Level 5 Restrictions Is Unlikely
Dublin has the highest number of cases with 321.
Elsewhere, there are 41 new cases of coronavirus in Cork, 47 in Meath, 34 in Limerick and 24 in Roscommon.
The remaining 257 cases are spread across the country.
The approximate 14-Day incidence rate is 248 per 100,000 population.
322 people with the virus are being treated in Irish hospitals, 44 of which are in intensive care units.
16 new patients were admitted in the past 24 hours.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr Tony Holohan said the lower case numbers is due to "the hard work Irish people are doing."
He says its unlikely that Level 5 restrictions will be eased early bit he'd never rule anything out.
"We're less than two weeks in to the [Level 5] measures - it's far too early to say that we're satisfied with where we're going."
"We need to keep going to push down the virus transmission," he added.
