United Kingdom virus 'super-spreader' says he has recovered

United Kingdom virus 'super-spreader' says he has recovered

The first case of the deadly coronavirus has been confirmed in London, raising the United Kingdom's total number of cases to nine, according to local reports.

The average number of people infected by a single Wuhan Coronavirus patient has been reported to be between two to three people, but Walsh has been linked to four cases in the United Kingdom, five in France and one in Majorca, all of whom were in France with him.

The patient has been transferred to a specialist NHS centre at Guy's and St Thomas' in London.

Professor Keith Willett, NHS strategic incident director, said Mr Walsh was discharged after two negative tests for coronavirus, 24 hours apart.

He added: "Of the 1,750 tests carried out so far in the United Kingdom, more than 99% of those tested have been negative for the coronavirus".

There have been no confirmed cases in New Zealand.

"So we don't have enough evidence at this stage to say that it is spreading in London - we have had an introduction of the virus to London from an individual that has travelled from China but as yet, no reported human-to-human transmission as a result of this new case".

So far, more than 1100 people have died from the virus, with almost all deaths occurring in mainland China. The research was done after studying around 138 people diagnosed with Coronavirus in Wuhan.

In a Commons statement, he told MPs that the risk to the public "remains moderate" and the eight patients with confirmed cases of coronavirus in Britain are receiving "expert care".

Officials know that the pair worked at a nursing home, Worthing Hospital A&E and two GP practices between them.

"My thoughts are with others who have contracted coronavirus", he added.

The Chinese Grand Prix due to take place in Shanghai on April 19 has also been cancelled.

He became known as a "super-spreader" in media reports because after his trip to Asia he stopped off for several days at a French ski chalet, where five Britons were later infected with the virus. "Both London and the rest of the United Kingdom can expect to see more cases, though hopefully these will continue to be isolated cases and seen in small numbers".

While 11 other people were infected because of him, Walsh has been recovering from this fatal disease.

"I would like to thank the clinical team who treated Mr Walsh in hospital, as well as all the NHS staff who are working hard with other health organisations to limit the spread of coronavirus and treat the small numbers who have contracted the illness".

The Bank of England governor has called coronavirus "bigger than SARS" from an economic perspective.
