Three schools located in the west of Ireland are to close amid coronavirus fears.

This is due to four new infections in the western part of the country.

As confirmed by the Irish Health Organisation, nine people have now been infected by the Covid-19 virus in the country so far.

Two of the schools, a primary and a secondary, have been closed until March 18th.

The third school will stay closed for one day.
