The Department of Health has reported no further deaths related to coronavirus.

Monday’s dashboard showed the death toll linked to Covid-19 to stand at 2,135.

In terms of new cases in the last 24 hours, the Department has recorded an increase of 79.

Over the last week, from April 12 to April 19, 776 individuals have tested positive in Northern Ireland.

There are 69 coronavirus patients in hospital at present, and eight in ICU after testing positive for the virus.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland’s vaccine programme has announced some limited availability for those aged 35-39 to book a jab.

The opportunity is in advance of opening the programme to the entire 35-39 age group by the end of April.

The Department of Health says appointments are mainly available at the vaccine centre at the SSE Arena and bookings will be available from 2.00pm today (Monday, April 19).

Appointments in community pharmacies will be made available to 35-39 year olds later in April as vaccine supplies permit.

If possible, booking should be done online here, however, where online booking is not possible, the telephone booking number is 0300 200 7813.
