The lowest number of Covid-19 cases this year has been recorded today. 

NPHET has reported 259 new cases this evening - the lowest since December 12th. 

There are 76 Covid patients in hospital, with 27 in intensive care. 

Dr Martin Daly, a former president of the Irish Medical Organisation, says the drop in cases is welcome:

Limerick has by far the highest 14-day incidence rate of Covid-19 in the country. 

It had a rate of 449 per 100,000 people in the two weeks to Monday. 

Donegal was the next worst, at 177.
