Department of Foreign Affairs updated advice in line with new recommendations from UK authorities

The National Public Health Emergency Team met on Tuesday in the Department of Health to review the available data and guidance regarding the outbreak and assess Ireland’s preparedness to handle the coronavisus.

It was made after many airline carriers, including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, grounded their flights serving China due to the outbreak. A number of Chinese airlines continue to operate, though not in Hubei province, where the outbreak started. The elderly and those with pre-existing medical conditions may be at heightened risk, the Foreign Office warned.
