U.S. President Donald Trump meets with Ireland's Prime Minister, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar within the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, U.S., March 12, 2020. "He wanted to help out even in a small way", the spokesman added.

Spokesperson of PM Varadkar said, "Many family and friends of Varadkar are working in the medical field".

Varadkar's partner Matthew Barrett is among these.

If you look around Europe and the situation in other countries, Ireland can say that it's doing well.

The move follows a recent appeal from the HSE for those with professional medical experience to return to the frontline amid the ongoing public health crisis. So far they have received 70,000 responses.

"I ask that everyone inform themselves on what to do in the instance they develop symptoms, as well as how to maintain their health and well-being".

"This is a cross-government effort in relation to a very important piece of technology in fighting COVID-19", HSE head of communications Paul Connors told journalists, adding that the app will also allow users to share health data with the authorities.
