The Dáil has passed new laws on mandatory hotel quarantine.

The laws will affect travellers coming into Ireland from high-risk countries that have been recommended by NPHET.

20 countries were included in the original list of high-risk countries.

These include Brazil, South Africa, Austria, the UAE and 16 African countries.

However, Health Minister Stephen Donnelly says the original list may be revisited after a meeting this evening.

Not everyone is happy with the measures.

Rise TD Paul Murphy has labelled it a "useless joke".

Sinn Féin's Pearse Doherty has criticised the government for lack of communication with middle-ranking gardaí.

His comments have come after a spokeswoman for the AGSI said they don't know how hotel quarantine will work.
