BBC News NI outlines the latest data on coronavirus and Covid-19 vaccinations across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Two more coronavirus-related deaths have been reported in Northern Ireland on Friday.

Deaths are measured by recording those who died within 28 days of receiving a positive result in a test for coronavirus.

The total number of deaths linked to Covid-19 in Northern Ireland since the start of the pandemic is 2,581.

Another 1,276 cases of the virus were also notified by the Department of Health, down from 1,305 cases on Thursday.

That includes cases confirmed from samples taken in recent days, not necessarily just in the latest 24-hour reporting period.

The latest hospital figures show there were 360 patients with Covid-19 in hospitals in Northern Ireland on Friday, up from 359 on Thursday.

Thirty-five Covid patients are being treated in hospital intensive care units, up from 33 on Thursday.
