“If cases continue to rise we will see an inevitable increase in the number of people hospitalised. We all have a role to play in preventing that from happening.

“This weekend it is vital that people play their part by decreasing social contacts. Do not drop your guard just because you are meeting people close to you."

He is urging people to remember that just because somebody looks and feels well, that does not mean they are COVID free.

Yesterday 93 additional cases of Covid-19 were confirmed and no further deaths.

There are currently 32 people in Irish hospitals being treated for the virus and five people in ICUs.
