Three Irish people remain quarantined in a British hospital after being evacuated from the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak in China.

259 people are now known to have died from the viral epidemic, which broke out in the city of Wuhan in central China.

The United States has announced a ban on the arrival of foreign nationals who've been to the country in the last two weeks - angering Beijing.

Irishman Greg McDonough is with his wife and child in a province close to the city.

He says there are strict travel restrictions in place.

"The roads out are closed, there's no buses, no taxis -- it's not officially locked down, but basically you cannot leave," he said.

"We were just out this morning and there wasn't a soul to be seen anywhere. Everybody's staying indoors."
