There have been no Covid-19 related deaths recorded by the Department of Health in the past 24 hours.

However. 1,430 new positive cases of the virus have been reported in the past 24 hours.

As of this morning, there are ten patients in intensive care wards in the region who are being treated for the virus.

And there are currently 165 Covid patients in total in hospitals across Northern Ireland.

The latest figures come as the Stormont Executive has given the go ahead for two further relaxations of Covid-19 restrictions but has delayed final decisions on a series of other planned moves.

The PA news agency understands that from Monday a cap limiting the number of households allowed to participate in 15-person outdoor gatherings will be removed.

Close contact services will also be able to accept walk-in customers from Monday.

PA understands that ministers have agreed to meet again on Monday and Thursday next week to consider whether to press ahead with other relaxations that had originally been earmarked for next week.
