Coronavirus: Dáil passes emergency legislation

The Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Bill has been passed in the Dáil without a requirement for a final vote.

The legislation will now be debated by the Seanad on Friday.

It was passed just over an hour after it was announced that the number of deaths in Ireland from Covid-19 more than doubled to 19.

On the island of Ireland, there are now over 2,000 confirmed cases of the virus.
