Cavan now has the ninth highest incidence rate in the country.

The Northern Ireland border isn't thought to be contributing to the latest spike in Covid cases.

In the early stages of the pandemic, the varying health restrictions in both jurisdictions was linked in a rise in cases in Donegal, Monaghan and Cavan.

Cavan now has the ninth highest incidence rate in the country at 660 cases per 100,000 population and over 500 new recent cases in the county.
