There are now over 5,300 confirmed cases. There were 370 new cases confirmed in the Republic yesterday, 10 of those were in Wicklow, where the number of people who have contracted the virus since it was first detected now stands at 142.
The National Public Health Emergency Team meets this morning to discuss further extending movement restrictions, but a formal recommendation won't be made until Friday.
But chief medical officer Tony Holohan says people will know before then if the measures will remain in place.
