Coronavirus: UK confirms first two cases as outbreak spreads globally

Coronavirus: UK confirms first two cases as outbreak spreads globally

The two patients in England are both members of the same family and are receiving specialist NHS care.

These were the details of the news Coronavirus: UK confirms first two cases as outbreak spreads globally for this day.

Perhaps coincidentally, on Wednesday, a StayCity hotel in York was placed on lockdown after a Chinese citizen staying there became ill and taken to hospital.

The firm has said the apartment involved has been thoroughly disinfected and PHE has been providing support.

AFP understands the pair had travelled to China recently.

Medical chiefs declined to give any detail on the condition of the two patients, including where they are from and if they had travelled to the United Kingdom from China, citing patient confidentiality.

"The report of the first two cases diagnosed positive for [coronavirus] in the U.K.is not surprising and was nearly inevitable", said Professor Paul Hunter, a professor in medicine at the University of East Anglia.

Still on health, Osagie Ehanire, the minister of health, on Tuesday, January 28, confirmed that only in 2020, Nigeria has recorded 41 deaths and 258 cases of Lassa fever outbreak in not less than 19 states.

CEPI, which has offices in London, Norway and the U.S., is a global partnership between public, private, philanthropic and civil society organisations to develop vaccines to stop future epidemics.

Whitty also said they were extending their advice so that anyone who had returned from China should "self-isolate" if they developed symptoms of any kind.

They will join 83 patients now at the Wirral hospital following their rescue from the embattled Hubei province, where last night the number of deaths jumped to 294.

"The experience was harrowing and quite surreal", the 28-year-old from Manchester told the PA news agency.

In a video, she said: "I'm sending my heartfelt thoughts to you in Wuhan and Hubei".

That decision was reversed hours before the plane was due to depart, but some people did not have time to get to the airport. Several airlines, including British Airways and Turkish Airlines, have suspended flights to Wuhan and other parts of China.

"WHO will keep working side-by-side with China and all other countries to protect health and keep people safe".

The cases have been confirmed in England, but it is not now known exactly where in the country the patients are.
