As of 8am this morning, 311 people were in hospital with the virus, 58 of whom are in intensive care.

The Rotunda hospital in Dublin announced today that it would ease some restrictions on partners attending appointments.

Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly criticised the decision.

The hospital said it will ease restrictions and allow longer visiting hours for partners.
