A further 1,352 further cases of Covid-19 has been reported by the Department of Health.
There are 27 people in ICU with the disease, while there are 177 patients in hospital with Covid-19.
HSE boss Paul Reid said there had been a “steady rise in hospitalisations”.
Speaking on RTÉ’s Morning Ireland, Paul Reid said that the HSE is “still concerned about slow rising numbers” and “monitoring it quite closely”.
Mr Reid added that “a lot of people are needing high acute care with respiratory support” and the Delta variant is “still a very live threat”.
He described the walk-in clinics over the weekend as a “huge success”.
“It worked exactly as we would have liked, in fact much better,” he said. In a post on Twitter, Mr Reid said that over 18,000 people have availed of the walk-in clinics so far.
