The Department of Health in Northern Ireland has said that 923 new cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the past 24 hours.
4,674 new Covid-19 cases have been identified in the region in the last seven days. 1,062 of the new cases in the past week have been detected in the Derry City and Strabane region.
One further death was also reported by the department today, bringing the death toll to 587.
Tighter restrictions are expected to be introduced in parts of Northern Ireland soon, as the region now has a higher seven-day rolling average of new cases per million people than countries such as the United States, Spain, and France. The executive is due to discuss the timing of extra restrictions when it meets today.
