The first case of Coronavirus has been confirmed at the EU’s offices in Brussels.

A spokesperson for the European Defence Agency says one of its employees has tested positive for Covid-19.

It's been confirmed that a number of staff who had been in close contact with the person have been sent home.

Meanwhile, the Department of Health says it doesn't think there are any more cases of the Coronavirus in the Republic of Ireland other than the two identified.

However, it has warned more people could present in the coming weeks.

A second confirmed case of Covid-19 was announced last night.

The female affected is in the east of the country and had traveled back from Northern Italy.

She's being given the appropriate treatment and the HSE is working to identify anyone she may have come in contact with.
