279 people with Covid-19 are in hospitals around the country this morning - that's unchanged from yesterday's total.
There were nine new admissions in the last 24 hours, while 16 people were discharged.
It comes as the estimated national 14-day incidence rate has fallen again to 185.6 - down from 196.4 on Friday.
Across the region Sligo has a rate of 207, Mayo has 183, Roscommon 177, Galway 172 and Leitrim has a rate of 28 per 100,000 people.
DCU Professor of Health Systems, Anthony Staines, says the second wave is the result of the failure to carry out more thorough contact tracing.
