The number of patients with Covid-19 in hospitals has fallen below 400 for the first time this year.
New figures from the Health Service Executive put the number at 392 last night.
It marks a reduction of 26 patients on what was reported yesterday morning.
The number of patients in intensive care is 101, a small reduction on the situation earlier yesterday. Daily hospital admissions have been reducing in recent weeks.
Ireland is in the late stages of the third wave of Covid-19 and all key indicators are improving.
The National Public Health Emergency Team has said that there is sustained and “perhaps even accelerated progress in suppressing transmission of Covid-19”.
The Department of Health reported 437 new cases of Covid-19 yesterday, taking the total to 223,651.
No further deaths were recorded, meaning the toll remains at 4,422.
