The most recent figures have been released.

208 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed on Monday, while no new deaths were recorded.

This brings the total number of confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the Republic of Ireland to 31,192, while the death toll remains at 1,784.

108 of Monday's cases are in Dublin, while 18 are in Louth, 12 in Donegal, 10 in Meath, nine in Kildare, eight in Waterford, seven in Cork, six in Limerick, six in Wexford, and the remainder spread across 12 counties.

98 of the cases are found to be men, while 110 are women.

62% of the cases are people under the age of 45.

The period of self-isolation for a case of Covid-19 has now changed to 10 days from onset of symptoms (or 10 days from date of test if asymptomatic), the last five of which should be without fever.

The period for restricting movements for those who are close contacts of a case, or who have travelled to Ireland from a country not on the green list has not changed, and remains at 14 days.

It was announced on Monday evening that guidance will be updated in the coming days to reflect this change.

Earlier on Monday, it emerged that Ireland currently has 60 people in hospital with Covid-19, while 11 people are in the ICU.

These figures represent the first time this mark has been reached since 17 July.

Two further Coronavirus deaths were reported in Northern Ireland on Monday, taking the official death toll to 570.

There was 109 new cases confirmed up north, from tests on 3,677 individuals.
