Provincial health officer set to give coronavirus update

Pressure grows on UK health officials to name British coronavirus 'super spreader'

The coronavirus is now a "critical and imminent menace" to the British public, the well being secretary has declared this morning.

The virus has killed 1,016 people among 42,638 confirmed cases in mainland China, and infected more than 43,000 people globally.

'The Secretary of State declares that the incidence or transmission of novel Coronavirus constitutes a critical and imminent menace to public well being, and the measures outlined in these rules are thought-about as an efficient technique of delaying or stopping additional transmission of the virus'.

Britons who have been flown back from Wuhan are now being held at Arrowe Park Hospital and Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes. The apparent ease with which virus spread raises concern that some of the 90 others who attended the conference may also have been infected and "may go on to initiate chains of infection in their home countries, " said Dr. Nathalie MacDermott, a clinical lecturer at King's College London.

The adult British citizen, who has not been named publicly, caught the virus while attending a conference in Singapore and then passed it on to several compatriots while on holiday in the French Alps, before finally being diagnosed back in Britain.

After being diagnosed he was transferred to St Thomas' Hospital in London, where he is being kept in an infectious disease unit.

The UN health agency explained that the name COVID-19 consists of the CO in coronavirus, VI in virus and D for disease; 19 stands for the year 2019.

The five Britons whose diagnosis was confirmed, as well as six compatriots with whom they had close contact, were taken to hospitals on Friday night in Lyon, Saint-Etienne and Grenoble. This "incubation period" helps officials figure out how long to maintain quarantines and how far back to look for potentially exposed people when tracing an infected person's movements.

After leaving Singapore, he stopped at French ski resort Les Contamines-Montjoie, boarded a plane, stopped by a pub in his hometown and may have gone to a doctor's clinic.

"The recent report of transmission to British nationals in France are a worrying but perhaps not unexpected development", said Dr Paul Hunter, professor in Medicine, University of East Anglia.

Speaking about the latest cases, World Health Organisation director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said they were "concerning instances of onward transmission from people with no travel history to China".

Four more patients in England have tested positive for coronavirus, bringing the total number of cases in the United Kingdom to eight.

More than 3,600 people are still in a 14-day quarantine on board the ship.

It has killed more than 900 people, majority in China, and has spread to at least 27 countries and territories.

Officials are now trying to trace anybody who came into contact with the two healthcare workers and the Patcham Nursing Home is isolating its 24 elderly residents after one of them visited the home.

The death toll in China from the coronavirus - now at 811 - surpasses SARS fatalities in the 2002-2003 outbreak.
