Coronavirus symptoms: The four signs you need to look out for as cases rise in the UK 1

Although it can be difficult to avoid people who are spluttering on public transport, and in the office, the WHO does recommend avoiding close contact with anyone who is showing signs of respiratory illness, such as coughing and sneezing.

Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty’s latest statement on the contagious virus reads: “One further patient in England has tested positive for novel coronavirus, bringing the total number of cases in the UK to nine.”

“This virus was passed on in China and the patient has now been transferred to a specialist NHS centre at Guy’s and St Thomas’ in London.”

Professor Whitty has advised people who have travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the past 14 days – and is experiencing cough, fever or shortness of breath – to stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.
