The Department of Health has confirmed 1,144 new cases of Covid-19 on Monday.

There are 384 people in hospital with Covid-19 and the number of people being treated in ICU remains at 59.

The figures released from the Department of Health on Monday did not contain information regarding deaths related to Covid-19.

The latest data from the Health Protection Surveillance Centre on Monday also showed that there has been a further reduction in the 14-day incidence of Covid-19 in Ireland with data up to 1 September putting the 14-day incidence at 491 cases for every 100,000 people.

It comes as restrictions throughout the country are set to continue to ease over the coming weeks with the final set of restrictions to be lifted on 22 October.

While mask-wearing and other public health measures will remain in place in certain sectors such as retail and on public transport, most other restrictions will have been eased by the end of October.

The first set of restrictions being lifted are to be eased from Monday 6 September, meaning from tomorrow there will be more activities allowed to resume.
