Five more people have died in Northern Ireland as a result of Covid-19 in the past 24 hours, according to the latest figures from the Department of Health.
There have also been a further 889 new positive cases recorded of the virus in the same period.
In total, 2,505,607 vaccines have been administered in Northern Ireland.
The latest figures come after it was announced yesterday that International travel rules are changing.
Proposed changes to pre-departure and post-arrival testing for travellers are under consideration and will be discussed by Executive ministers next week.
The changes come following a meeting of UK Government ministers.
The new travel framework is to simplify the current process, a statement from the Northern Ireland Executive said.
Changes are also being made to the red list, with a number of countries, including Turkey, Egypt and the Maldives, removed from it from September 22.
Anyone travelling from the EU and the USA who are fully vaccinated will no longer have to self-isolate or undertake a day eight PCR test.
From October 4, fully vaccinated travellers from a number of countries, including Canada, Australia, Israel and New Zealand, will be included in the policy.
