"India Ahead Of The Curve": Trump Does A Namaste Amid Coronavirus Scare

Varadkar also advised people to work remotely where it is possible to do so, and noted that, from 6:00pm this evening, schools, colleges and childcare facilities will close around the country as part of the country's response to Covid-19.

Have you been affected by the coronavirus outbreak in the Republic of Ireland? "It's a very odd feeling when people walk up and say "hi", he said.

Marts, farm organisations and Teagasc are now deciding their next move following the Taoiseach's comments this morning, Thursday, March 12.

"It is going to involve big changes in the way we live our lives and I know I'm asking people to make enormous sacrifices but we're doing it for each other", Mr Varadkar said.

Teaching will be done online or remotely.

He also said that any indoor gatherings of more than 100 people - as well as outdoor gatherings of more than 500 people - should also be canceled.

Mr Johnson told reporters at a Press conference in Downing Street that there was no need to close schools now as the scientific advice "is that this could do more harm than good".

"The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight", President Trump said, adding "anything coming from Europe to the United States is what we are discussing".

Mr Varadkar, speaking a short distance from the White House, said public transport will continue to operate as normal and shops would remain open.

Businesses are asked to take measures to minimise face-to-face contact and to implement measures to limit contact where possible.

The National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) announced the new cases at a briefing in Dublin today. It is going to spread further and I must level with you, I must level with the British public: "many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time".

"We will continue to liaise with Government officials and review the situation between now and the end of the month, assessing the impact of these measures on our competitions".

A Green Party TD says her party feels that their time would be better spent "focusing completely" on the coronavirus pandemic rather than getting involved in full government formation talks.

There are more than 118,000 cases in 114 countries, and 4,291 people have died, the World Health Organization said, with the numbers expected to climb.

Ireland confirmed its first death of a patient diagnosed with the coronavirus on Wednesday as the number of confirmed cases of the virus rose to 43 from 34 a day earlier.
