No further coronavirus-linked deaths have been recorded on Sunday, meaning the total number of deaths remains at 2,152.

The figures also show that 77 more people have tested positive for coronavirus.

It means that a total of 122,154 people in Northern Ireland have had a confirmed diagnosis since the pandemic began.

As of Friday, a total of 34 people were being treated for the virus in hospital, two of whom were in intensive care units.

Due to a recent cyber attack on the IT system used by the Republic of Ireland's health service, some official Covid-19 statistical services have been paused until further notice.

Ireland's Covid-19 dashboard was last updated on Friday 14 May, the day after the cyber attack.

At that point, there had been a total of 4,941 Covid-related deaths and 254,870 positive cases since the beginning of the pandemic.

In a statement on Saturday, the Irish Department of Health said 381 new cases had been reported.

As of 17:00 local time on Saturday, 110 people were being treated for the virus in hospital, 42 of whom were in intensive care units.

In the past 24 hours four more people were hospitalised.
