The cell area of one of the biggest garda stations in the country remains in lockdown tonight as gardai awaited medical results to determine if three arrested men have Covid-19.

The situation means that over a dozen officers based at the affected stations – Kevin Street and Store Street Garda Stations are in self isolation after coming in contact with men who may have the deadly virus.

The officers had been dealing with three Brazilian men who had allegedly flown into the country illegally on a flight from Portugal.
