There have been no further deaths recorded in the country.

It brings the death toll since last March – of people who first tested positive for the virus within the previous 28 days – to 9,031.

There are currently 896 people in hospital confirmed to have the virus with 61 being treated in intensive care.

To date 4,302,382 people have received their first vaccination with 3,890,477 having a second jab.
