Mr Varadkar said there are no plans for an emergency budget - but this may change later in the year.

HRI issued a brief statement on Tuesday, confirming that all racing in the country would cease "as of midnight tonight as per the latest Government guidelines on Covid-19".

The Taoiseach also said he thinks it will be possible to form a Government in the next couple of weeks.

The government advises that outside gatherings should consist of no more than four people.

He said they are not there yet but Fine Gael is continuing to negotiate with Fianna Fáil.

The booklet is going to be delivered to every home in Ireland.

"We need to flatten the curve and suppress the virus", he said.

"It is very easy to be misled or confused".

Mr Varadkar thanked An Post and Government officials for putting the booklet together so quickly.

All hotels are to limit occupancy to essential non-commercial and non-tourist reasons, and all non-essential retail outlets are to close, while all other retail outlets are to implement physical distancing.

He said the number of ICU admissions is "a cause of concern" - saying that shows there are a number of people in the country who are seriously ill.

He described it as significant, but not unprecedented.

"Parents don't have to pay for child care that they're not receiving", said Varadkar today. I know how anxious they are at the moment and how vulnerable they feel.

It follows the steady rise in the number of positive cases of COVID-19 in Ireland and the recommendations from the Irish National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) to strengthen efforts against the disease.

Mr Varadkar today the estimate was based on a 30% daily increase of new cases.

"We can't start to even contemplate the idea that were containing this virus until we see the number of new cases a day fall, and fall consistently, and we're nowhere near that", he said.

Mr Varadkar added: "So we need to maintain our humanity as well".

All places of worship, such as churches and mosques, are to restrict numbers of people entering at any one time "to ensure adequate physical distancing".

"There needs to be two metres between you and other people", he said.

He urged people who think coughing at people is amusing to think about if they were their own grandparent. The first payments will be made this Friday.

He reminded people that the power is in their own hands to prevent the impact of the virus on themselves, their loved ones and their community.

"I want to thank the people of Ireland for listening to the advice".

He said they are very conscious that there is an terrible lot of information out there, and they are trying to provide simple advice for people to slow the spread of the disease. "It's the difference between saving lives and not".

"I encourage everyone to read it when it arrives".

"These are unprecedented actions to respond to an unprecedented crisis", he said this afternoon.

"It's in our homes that we will stop the spread", he said.
