The seven-day average for reported positive results has dropped to 25 - down from 30.

However there's been a slight increase in the reproduction, or 'R', number.

Public Health says the trend of a slight fall, or plateau, in case numbers reported from testing is in line with the plateau of the virus reported from waste water testing.

Meanwhile data which shows the number of people in hospital with Covid-19 and their vaccination status has not been provided in this week's report.

Public Health says it's taken the decision not to report these figures due to small numbers and ‘associated caveats and identifiability’.
