Doctor Warns London's Underground System Could Be Breeding Ground For Coronavirus

London has reportedly confirmed its first case of coronavirus in a Chinese national

Suspected cases of coronavirus are still being tested, including one mother who told the Sun that her baby son had come into contact with an infected doctor while being treated for a leg injury at Worthing Hospital.

Two staff from Lewisham hospital in south London are now in isolation at home after coming into contact with the woman, a Chinese national who had recently arrived in the capital from China.

A ninth person has tested positive for Coronavirus in the UK.

Public Health England (PHE) confirmed on Wednesday it has traced and advised all close contacts of the two Global Positioning System, including about 12 patients. The patient went to St Thomas' yesterday evening. As soon as the patient did this, the patient was given a mask and then escorted to be tested in the dedicated area we have assigned for coronavirus testing outside the A&E building - while awaiting the installation of a purpose-built "pod".

According to the Guardian, her manner of arrival has not put other patients at risk of infection despite going against public health officials' advice.

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

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.


This message was placed on the surgery website earlier today.

"The safety of our customers and employees is our top priority and we are working closely with Public Health England regarding this individual case", the spokesperson said. Some are also concerned that the Uber driver who took her there may be at risk, and possibly others in his auto later.

In a nine-minute message broadcast to the nation, prime minister Lee Hsien Loong said: 'Fear can do more harm than the virus itself'.

The Transport Times email enclosed a letter from PHE saying delegates should take no action if they were well but to stay indoors, avoid contact with others and call NHS 111 if they developed symptoms such as a fever or cough.

Officials are attempting to trace the contacts of the latest person to be diagnosed with coronavirus in the UK.

The whole variety of deaths worldwide has handed 1,100, with the general variety of instances close to 45,000.

He said: "As our first group of guests leaves Arrowe Park Hospital, we want to thank them for the highly responsible, pragmatic and stoical way they have played their part in keeping both themselves and others safe".
