More than 20 hospitals have two of fewer cases of Covid-19 according to HSE chief executive Paul Reid.

Mr Reid tweeted: "Many hospitals continue to see progress with #Covid19 inpatients."

He added that ten hospitals in the country now have no patients being treated for the virus, while 22 hospitals in total have "two or less cases".

"This is great progress. But as always, a caution. We still see some admissions. So please continue to protect yourself," Mr Reid added.

On Tuesday, the Department of Health confirmed there were 60 people in hospital with Covid-19, 23 of whom were in intensive care.

According to the Government's Covid-19 data hub, the number in ICU has since fallen to 19, the lowest figure recorded since September 29th.
