Dublin has the highest number of cases at 12,213 (48%), followed by Cork with 1,533 (6%) and Kildare with 1,434 (6%).

Speaking at Monday's briefing, Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan said: "An analysis of cases reported in the last 14 days tells us that the number of daily cases remains on a downward trend.

"This combined with hospitalisation and ICU trends indicated that the behaviours adopted by the general public continue to suppress the disease in the community."

Deputy Chief Medical Officer Ronan Glynn said on Monday night that it is believed that almost 1.7 million people are now wearing face coverings in public places, an increase of 300,000 people from last week.

This news came on the same day that for the second day in a row, Northern Ireland has reported no new Covid-19 deaths.

The North did however report four new cases.
