A GP practice in North London has closed due to the coronavirus.

The GP practice in question is Ritchie Street Health Centre in Islington.
People are being told to avoid the practice even if they think they might have the deadly virus.
“Any patients that have the symptoms should call 111 and not come to the practice,” a spokesperson said.
The surgery is close to the Business Design Centre and Angel London Underground station.
This news comes after a London woman became the ninth person in the UK to test positive for the virus.
Doctors are now warning the London Underground could become a hotbed for a spread of the disease.
