The health body recently changed the way it records the figures.

Cases identified through a positive lateral flow test – those which can deliver results within half an hour – will no longer be counted if the person then takes a PCR test, which is sent to a lab to be checked, and receives a negative result within three days.

Between May 4 and yesterday, there have been 70 deaths within 28 days of a positive test, which shows a decrease of -33.3 per cent compared to the previous seven days.

Currently, 67.3 per cent of adults have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine and nearly 40 per cent have received their second.
