A new Covid-19 information book will be delivered to every household in the country in the coming days.
The booklet was launched to provide the public with factual information about coronavirus Covid-19. The 14-page document will be issued free of charge by An Post.
Contents include a guide to symptoms of Covid-19, what to do if you experience worrying symptoms, information on what the government is doing to prevent the spread, how a person can protect themselves from the virus and how to self-isolate.
Everyone is encouraged to read the booklet when it arrives.
An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said the document is a key step to tackle fake news:
The new booklet comes as 1,564 cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in the Republic. Nine people have passed away as a result of the illness. Of the hospitalised cases, 39 have been admitted to ICU.
