Coronavirus in the UK

Public Health England advise that the chances of getting the illness in the UK are low.

Based on scientific advice, the UK Chief Medical Officers are advising anyone who has travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days and is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, to stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild. This list will be kept under review.

Advice for travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province remains unchanged and all travellers should self-isolate for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms.

Latest information for the public on the outbreak of coronavirus in China, including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms is available from the Department of Health and Social Care here and is updated on a daily basis at 2pm.
