The Health Protection Surveillance Centre has today been notified of 5,940* PCR-confirmed cases of COVID-19.
In addition, on Tuesday 1 February, 6,620** people registered a positive antigen test through the HSE portal.
There has been a total of 6,228 deaths related to COVID-19 notified in Ireland. This includes 92 deaths newly notified in the past week (since last Wednesday).
As of 8am today, 630 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised, of which 65 are in ICU.
*Given the current high incidence, the daily case number is based on positive SARS-CoV-2 results uploaded to the HSE COVID Care Tracker the preceding day. These data are provisional. The HPSC and surveillance partners will continue to notify and process cases and outbreaks of COVID-19 on CIDR over this period.
