Donald Trump has banned flights from most of Europe from entering the US for 30 days due to the Coronavirus.

However, Ireland was not included in a list of banned countries released by the US Department of Homeland Security.

A further release from the US Department of Homeland Security said only Schengen countries will be barred.

That doesn't include Ireland - though official confirmation is still being sought from the government.

The Taoiseach will meet the US President later at the white house, but the annual shamrock ceremony has been cancelled amid Coronavirus fears.

That meeting between Varadkar and Trump does now takes on greater significance, with the Taoiseach effectively also representing Europe following the ban.

Meanwhile,  New York City's annual St Patrick's Day Parade has been postponed over the coronavirus.

It's the first time the parade has been called off in its 258-year history.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says postponing the event's in the best interest of public health.
