The Department of Health has reported an additional 576 Covid cases today.

There are 58 patients with the disease in hospital, an increase of 6 on yesterday's figure.

While the number of people receiving treatment in ICU remains at 16.

The Health Minister says just one fully vaccinated person has suffered a so-called breakthrough Covid infection that put them in ICU in recent months.

Stephen Donnelly says 124 cases needed treatment in intensive care since April.

However just one person was fully vaccinated, something the Minister says heightens the importance of the second dose.
