Chief Medical Officer Dr Tony Holohan has also urged people to self-isolate if they suspect they may be a close contact of a confirmed case, or have displayed any symptoms of the virus.

"If you display any symptoms of Covid-19 or suspect you are a close contact of a confirmed case, you should attend a test centre for a free test and self-isolate until you receive your results," he said in a statement on Sunday.

"If you have been diagnosed with Covid-19, it’s really important that you self-isolate for a period of 10 days to reduce the risk of spreading Covid-19 to other people in your community."
