Ireland has the fourth highest incidence rate of Covid-19 in the EU - with only Cyprus, Portugal and Spain faring worse.

 The Republic's 14-day rate is now 121 per 100,000 people, with 534 new cases confirmed yesterday.

Co Sligo now has the second highest rate of Covid-19 in this country, after Donegal.

The 14-day rate in Donegal is now 360, and 213 per 100,000 in Sligo, while Roscommon has the 4th highest rate at 190 per 100,000 population.

Latest figures show Sligo has confirmed 140 new cases of the virus over the past two weeks, with 123 new cases in Roscommon, 198 in Galway and 94 in Mayo.

Mayo's 14-day rate of the virus is now 72 per 100,000 - well below the national average, and Leitrim still has the 2nd lowest rate nationally.

However, graphs show the virus is on the rise across Sligo, Roscommon and Mayo.
