Members of the Government and Northern Executive will meet today to discuss the approach to combating the spread of coronavirus on the island of Ireland.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Tánaiste Simon Coveney and Health Minister Simon Harris members will attend the North South Council meeting in Armagh.

They'll be joined by Northern Ireland's First Minister Arlene Foster, Deputy First Minister Michelle O'Neill and Health Minister Robin Swann.

The two jurisdictions' chief medical officers will also be in attendance.

As of yesterday evening, there were 90 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Republic and 29 in the North - a total of 119 across the entire island.

Currently, different approaches are being taken by the governments in both jurisdictions - schools have closed temporarily in the Republic, but they remain open in the North.

Ms O'Neill yesterday called for all schools and colleges in the North to be temporarily closed in response to the outbreak.
