One more person has died as a result of Covid-19 in Northern Ireland.

It brings the total number of lives lost to date here to 523.

There have also been seven new patients diagnosed with coronavirus.

The daily figures were released by the Department of Health on Sunday afternoon and cover the past 24 hours.

It comes as Health Minister Robin Swann continues to remind the public to act responsibly.

He said: “Another weekend is upon us and the weather forecast is very good. That brings with it the risk that people will flood outdoors and forget the social distancing rules that have saved countless lives.

“I am therefore urging everyone to keep doing the right thing. Keep your distance and keep washing your hands.

“Enjoy the weekend by all means – but act responsibly at all times.

“Don’t ever underestimate Covid-19. It still poses a very deadly threat to you and to those you care about.

“We can beat this virus – but only if we keep taking it seriously and stay united against it.”
