Coronavirus: ‘Increased Likelihood’ In UK. NHS can deal with it
There is an “increased likelihood” of cases of the new coronavirus occurring in the UK, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said.
However, he added there were no confirmed cases of the virus in the UK and the country was “well prepared and well equipped to deal with them”.
There are more than 500 confirmed cases of the virus, which has killed 17 people in China.
The UK is monitoring flights arriving from China as a precaution.
The new strain of coronavirus, which has spread abroad, is believed to have originated in Wuhan – and the city has gone into lockdown.
Authorities have suspended planes and trains in and out of the Chinese city – which has a population of 11 million people – as well as all public transport within Wuhan.
