BBC News NI outlines the latest data on coronavirus and Covid-19 vaccinations across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Northern Ireland

Five more coronavirus-related deaths have been recorded in Northern Ireland within the latest 24-hour reporting period.

Deaths are measured by recording those who died within 28 days of receiving a positive test result for coronavirus.

The total number of deaths linked to Covid-19 in Northern Ireland since the start of the pandemic is 2,194.

Another 1,072 positive cases have been reported by the Department of Health on Sunday, down from 1,177 on Saturday.

That includes samples taken in recent days, not necessarily in the past 24 hours.

The Department of Health does not update its Covid-19 statistics dashboard at weekends so there are no up-to-date figures for the number of patients being treated in hospitals.

As of Friday, there were 232 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of Covid-19 in hospitals in Northern Ireland. That figure was down two from Thursday's total of 234 patients.

There were 32 patients with Covid-19 in intensive care units, up one from Thursday. On Friday, there were 25 people on ventilators, the same number as Thursday.
