The Irish government is urging people to make sure their PCs are up to date on antivirus software, as the country faces its largest ever outbreak of the virus.
More than 1.2 million people in Ireland have reported having received an infection of the coronavirus, which has killed more than 300 people.
The Irish Health Service (IHS) is working with international partners to help ensure that people get tested for the virus and that the infection is isolated to a small number of isolated cases in a relatively isolated community.
The government is also encouraging people to take their antivirus and anti-malware software on automatic update cycles, which is aimed at ensuring that all computers are up-to-date.
The latest virus is not spreading through the internet, and people need to be on high alert to protect themselves from the virus if they decide to move.
The virus was first discovered in Ireland in February and has since spread rapidly.
In the latest outbreak, there are now more than 200 confirmed cases and more than 600 deaths.
The most recent case was diagnosed in August and has now infected more than 500 people, according to the latest figures.
The IHS said that it was not expecting the virus to spread in Ireland until late next year.
