Coronavirus: Woman diagnosed in London went to A&E in an Uber

This makes up to 9 cases of coronavirus in the UK.

The report revealed that the patient is now receiving treatment at Guy's and St. Thomas' hospital in London. Some are also concerned that the Uber driver who took her there may be at risk, and possibly others in his auto later.

All attendees at the UK Bus Summit have been emailed warning them that someone at the summit had the killer disease, according to the Financial Times.

Meanwhile, health officials in Brighton and Hove - where Mr Walsh and five of the confirmed cases live - said all those who might have been in contact with them have been identified and advised to self-isolate for 14 days.

Dave Smith, the chair of the Royal College of Nursing's Emergency Care Association, said: "It's worrying to hear that the public aren't following Public Health England advice about phoning NHS 111 to seek advice, and therefore putting other members of the public and NHS staff at risk of contracting coronavirus".

As with the previously confirmed cases, officials are working to identify recent contacts she had.

"We are planning that we are into this for the next few months", a source told The Guardian.This comes after a Chinese woman, who lives in London with relatives, and is in her late 20s or early 30s, was tested positive for coronavirus.


Dr Robin Thompson, an expert in mathematical epidemiology at Oxford University, said: 'In general, if an initial case is in a densely populated area, then the risk of sustained person-to-person transmission following is higher.

"That is exacerbated by the truth that London is a transport hub, and the underground might present a community to unfold the virus rapidly".

"The patient was later discharged and taken home by London Ambulance Service".

The Ritchie Street Health Centre in Islington, north London, posted a message on its website stating it would be closed until today "due to the coronavirus".

Results usually come back within 48 hours - although they can be turned around in 24 hours - and the NHS can test a maximum of 1,000 patients in a day.

Professor Chris Witty, chief medical officer for England, confirmed the coronavirus case saying that the virus had been passed on in China. "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".

"None of the outstanding tests fit people who have all the symptoms of coronavirus".
