LATEST: 283 new cases of virus confirmed
A further 283 new cases of Covid-19 were confirmed this evening, an increase of 39 on yesterday’s figures.
The Department of Health reported 60 people are being treated for the virus in hospitals, seven less than yesterday’s total.

However, the department warned the number of cases may change due to future data validation amid the disruption caused by the cyber attack on the HSE’s system.
