There has been a total of 1,802 Covid related deaths in Ireland, while there has been 34,990 confirmed cases since the beginning of the outbreak. 

212 of Sunday's cases are in Dublin, with 54 in Cork, 23 in Donegal, 23 in Galway, 16 in Louth, 15 in Monaghan, 12 in Clare, 12 in Meath, nine in Cavan, eight in Roscommon, seven in Wicklow, six in Limerick, five in Kildare and five in Tipperary.

The remaining 23 cases are spread across nine counties.

72% of today's cases are people under 45 years of age.

40% are confirmed to be associated with outbreaks or are close contacts of a confirmed case.

Acting CMO Ronan Glynn said: "As we start into this new week, I am asking every household across the country to sit together this evening and make a plan to reduce the number of people you meet this week.

"We have absolutely no room for complacency. If every person, family, workplace and organisation does not play their part the situation will continue to deteriorate.

"For people who live in Donegal and Dublin remember Government advice is to work from home unless it is essential to attend in person. For people living in these and all other counties, assume that COVID-19 is circulating in your community and act accordingly."

In Northern Ireland, 187 individuals have tested positive for Covid-19 in the past 24 hours.
