New Laws Would See Powers To Detain People With Coronavirus

New laws would allow the government to detain people with the Coronavirus and shut down parts of the country.

The government has signed off on a ban on evictions and rent increases while the country deals with the Coronavirus.

The Dáil will approve the legislation in another special sitting next week.

This evening a reduced number of TDs are debating laws to give the government the power to detail people with the virus.

It's also going to approve increased social welfare supports for people who've lost their jobs.
