The death toll in the state now stands at 1,827 out of a total of 45,531 cases.
78 percent of the new cases involve people under 45, 254 cases in Dublin, 147 in Cork, 39 in Cavan, 38 in Donegal, 37 in Kildare, with the remaining 310 cases spread across 20 other counties.
Chief Medical Officer Tony Holohan said positive rates for the virus are “rising rapidly” in all counties.
Border districts have been shown to have had the highest per capita increase in the past 14 days.
In Cavan, the 14-day accident rate per 100,000 population was 385.9. In Donegal it was 354.9 and in Monaghan 330.7. The next highest counties were Clare with 266 and Roscommon with 199.9.
Data from Monday showed that cases in Dublin were broadly stable for the past two weeks at 178.4 per 100,000 residents, just above the national rate of 167.8 and below eight other counties.
“We have seen some of the effects of the measures, the growth rate in Dublin has decreased, it is now at least lower than in other parts of the country. We saw some stabilization in the numbers last week, but for each of the past three days we’ve seen ‘I’ve seen case numbers again,’ Holohan told a press conference on Monday evening.
“I don’t think we have anything like evidence that I want to conclude that the situation in Dublin is stable enough… I don’t think we can conclude that we have turned a corner . ”
In the north, another three deaths and 877 new cases of Covid-19 were reported on Monday.
Almost a third of all confirmed cases in the region since the pandemic began, 6,161 out of 21,035, were reported in the past seven days. There are currently 140 patients in the hospital and 22 in intensive care due to the virus.
Although there was a less extensive testing regimen during the height of the pandemic, the rising numbers are causing significant concern among health officials.
The regional incidence rate for the past seven days is 327 cases per 100,000.
In the Derry and Strabane Council area, which is currently subject to additional local restrictions, the rate rose to 971 per 100,000 last week.
