A further 329 Covid-19 cases have been confirmed today by the Department of Health as hospitalisations continue to decrease.

There are now 57 coronavirus patients in hospital and 19 in ICU. This is down three Covid-19 patients in hospital from yesterday and four fewer in ICU.

There is currently no up-to-date data available on coronavirus-related deaths due to the HSE cyber attack.

This comes as Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said that the current epidemiological situation, with cases and hospitalisations falling, would allow to proceed with reopening plans.

This would see indoor dining, mass gatherings and international travel returning in July.

“The numbers are all still going in the right direction, cases going down, hospitalisations going down, more people getting vaccinated and double-jabbed every day,” he said.

“In England, we’re watching the situation very carefully there.

“But as things stand for now, the plan is to proceed with the July reopening as planned. International travel and restrictions [lifted] on July 19 and then further relaxation in August.”
