Where it is possible to work remotely, people are requested to do so, thus requiring employers, the public and business interests to take a sensible approach to coronavirus.

Mr Varadkar made the announcement in Washington DC, where he is visiting as part of the annual St.Patrick’s Day celebrations, latter which has been sensibly cancelled in light of the spreading virus.
