Away from the border region, Clare has the next highest 14-day incidence rate with 266. According to data from the Government's Covid-19 Data Hub, two of the county's five local electoral areas (LEAs) have incidence rates of over 200.

Only six counties now have incidence rates under 100, with Mayo, Wicklow, Tipperary, Kilkenny, Carlow and Waterford noting a slower progression of the virus.

As a result of the rapid spike in cases, the Stormont Executive is due to hold an emergency meeting to discuss potential restrictions.

One of the North's priorities is the availability of beds in Intensive Care Units (ICUs), with all but 17 of the North's 98 ICU beds occupied according to the latest data from the Northern Irish Department of Health.

In the Republic, the HSE confirmed that there are 240 patients with Covid-19 in hospital as of 11am this morning, a jump of 19 in the last 24 hours. Of the 240 patients, 32 are being treated in ICUs around the country.
