The Deputy Chief Medical Officer says Ireland's progress in driving down Covid rates has not "stalled".
NPHET yesterday reported 901 new cases of the virus, and 47 deaths.
There were 27 new cases in Mayo, 43 in Galway, 9 in Leitrim, 7 in Roscommon, 5 in Sligo.
There are 752 people in public hospitals with Covid and 148 in intensive care.
The number of new cases has remained near 1,000 per day for the last week, despite lockdown measures.
But Dr Ronan Glynn says things are moving in the right direction, just more slowly than before.
