The number of Covid-19 patients receiving treatment in hospital has fallen to its lowest number in over three weeks, latest figures show.

There are currently 528 Covid-19 patients in hospital.

This represents the lowest figure since November 9th.

In the past 24 hours there were 64 admissions and 54 discharges.

Percentage wise, this figure is 7.6% lower than last week, and 17.8% less than two weeks ago.
