326 new cases of Covid 19 have been confirmed and no further deaths.

The Acting Chief Medical Officer says there's "every chance" more counties might have to move to level 3 restrictions.

Of the 326 new cases, 152 cases are in Dublin, 32 in Cork, 22 in Donegal, 21 in Galway, 15 in Meath, 11 in Kildare, 9 in Kerry, 8 in Louth, 8 in Westmeath, 6 in Limerick, 6 in Mayo, 6 in Tipperary and 5 in Wexford,

The remaining 25 cases are spread across 8 counties.

Two thirds of the new infections are people under the age of 45.

The Acting Chief Medical Officer has made a special to appeal to people in Dublin and Donegal to pay special attention to the public health advice.

Level 3 restrictions come into place for Donegal at midnight tonight.

Ronan Glynn says there's "every chance" more counties could follow - but that there's nothing inevitable about it.

His main message is for everyone to prioritise who they need to see and limit their social contacts in the coming days and weeks.
