The Department of Health is reporting four further deaths related to Covid-19, while another 344 cases have been confirmed here.

Of the latest cases, 127 are in Dublin, 46 are in Cork, 26 are in Louth, 22 are in Donegal, 20 are in Limerick and the remaining 103 cases are spread across 20 other counties.

The national incidence rate is 113.3 - slightly higher than last night.

However, hospitals remain under pressure, with 428 Covid-19 confirmed inpatients across Northern Ireland on Saturday - 41 of which were in intensive care and 31 were on ventilators. There have been 12 additional hospitalisations in the past 24 hours.

The Department of Health said that 69pc of the cases occurred in those under the age of 45.

In Europe, only Finland and Iceland have lower incidence rates than Ireland, according to the European Centre for Disease Control.

However, Stephen Donnelly says it's too early to say what restrictions will be in place for the festive season.

An announcement on exiting the existing Level 5 restrictions is now expected to be made by the Government next Thursday evening.

Four further deaths have also been reported today.

Cafes, restaurants and hairdressers were allowed to reopen in the North today.
