Latest Covid-19 figures for the north west

788 new coronavirus cases have been confirmed and 17 more patients with the virus have died.

Of these cases, 9 were recorded in Donegal, 5 in Sligo and less than 5 in Leitrim.

As of 6.30pm Sunday evening, there were no critical care beds available in both Sligo and Letterkenny University Hospital.

The figures come as people aged over 85 will start getting the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines today.

While a public health expert says we need to do whatever it takes to get covid 19 case numbers down.

RCSI Professor Sam McConkey says if someone in this age group doesn’t get the vaccine, it should be given to over 70s
