Coronavirus: Third confirmed case in UK #coronavirus #uk #wuhan #china #emergency

Coronavirus Alert

A third person in the UK has tested positive for coronavirus, the Department of Health has said.

The person did not contract it in the UK, the department said.

Professor Chris Whitty, chief medical officer for England said: “A further patient has tested positive for coronavirus bringing the total number of cases in the UK to three.

“The individual did not acquire this in the UK.

“The patient is being transferred to a specialist NHS centre, and we are using robust infection control measures to prevent any possible further spread of the virus.

“The NHS is well prepared to manage these cases and we are now working quickly to identify any contacts the patient has had.”

The first two people in the UK to be infected with the virus, which originates from Wuhan, central China, were confirmed on 31 January.

They were both staying at a hotel in York when they fell ill and one of them is a student at the University of York, while the other is not but is related to them.

Both of them are being treated at a specialist hospital unit in Newcastle.

The death toll from mainland China jumped by 73 people on Thursday to 563, with more than 28,000 confirmed infections inside the world’s second largest economy.

Outside mainland China, at least 240 cases have been confirmed, with 28 in Europe, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
