The Chief Medical Officer says the incidence of Covid-19 in young people is falling but it continues to rise in those aged over 75.
Dr Tony Holohan says we have more to do to suppress the virus but we're on the right track.
There are 416 new cases of Covid-19 in the Republic and 5 more deaths.
Of the new cases there are 41 in Mayo, 37 in Galway, eleven in Sligo, less than five in Roscommon and no new cases in Leitrim.
The estimated national 14-day incidence rate per 100-thousand has dropped to 268.7
DCU Professor Anthony Staines says to keep the numbers down we need restrictions on a county by county basis when level 5 ends.
