People aged over 75 accounted for more than three-quarters (79.3%) of all Covid-19 related deaths in Northern Ireland.

Ireland's tally of daily new coronavirus cases has fallen below 100 for a sixth day in a row on Thursday.

Meanwhile, 57 new cases of the virus have also been confirmed, bringing the total number of cases here to 24,639.

Another 64 of the beds are taken up by non COVID-19 related patients, providing 24 spare ICU beds.
