There is further encouragement this afternoon that Ireland may avoid a fourth wave of Covid-19 as the seven-day positivity rate has fallen below 3 per cent for the first time this year.

Latest data from Irish labs recorded 448 positive swabs from 19,099 tests in the last 24 hours — a positivity rate of 2.35 per cent, leading to a seven-day positivity rate of 2.9 per cent.

At the peak of the third wave, the daily positivity rate was above 25 per cent.

NPHET is due to hold a briefing later this evening.
