More young people in Ireland are continuing to be diagnosed with COVID-19 prompting anxiety among health officials as 23 new cases and 6 deaths were recorded in the country.

Nisra figures recorded 12 deaths involving Covid-19 in the week June 13-19, bringing the total number of deaths in the region to 816.

As of 21 June, the seven-day rolling average of new cases is two.

There have been six more coronavirus-related deaths in the Republic of Ireland.

Dr Tony Holohan, chief medical officer, Department of Health, said: 'High levels of compliance to public health advice to date have enabled further reopening of economic and social life. And this is thanks to collective efforts of everyone.

"7% of cases notified in Ireland over the past fortnight have been associated with travel".

"It fits with something we've seen over the course of this entire pandemic, the solidarity of the whole population, the community supporting one another through this". A further eight cases were in people aged between 35-54. "The booklet outlines safe behaviours that should be practiced in varied scenarios such as at home, at work, on public transport, shopping, and when meeting others indoors and outdoors".

The last death occurred between May 8 and May 15 with the total number of deaths staying at 27 between May 15 - June 12.
