The BBC have announced that two patients in the UK have been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

No further details have been given other than they are both members of the same family and are receiving specialist NHS care.

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-51325192

 

At present, 83 Britons and 27 foreign nationals are flying back to the UK from Wuhan, the Chinese city at the centre of the outbreak.

The flight is due to land at RAF Brize Norton at 13:30 GMT.

The UK passengers will then be taken to Arrowe Park Hospital on the Wirral and quarantined for two weeks.

Three years ago I wouldn't have worried about it. Things change and now I am. Time to forget I'm no longer a youngster and also I fit into a different category of those at risk.

It won't stop me enjoying myself as much as I can. It also won't stop be being worried.

Hi 👋 Am I wrong not to be too worried about this virus? I feel like everyone is going insane... just me?

Depends on age and vulnerability @Zoe85

Been informed and adhering to the recommended rules, may help us all to prevent the epidemic & pandemic virus, which we know could do worse than effecting our emotional wellbeing....

What I am saying is, not to underestimate the effects of this virus, now globally spread...

I've been using hand sanitiser for a few weeks.. I can't use it all the time as it dries my skin out!

The sky is falling, @Cleoriff 🤔

 

The Dublin to Belfast train was deep-cleaned overnight recently too...

Several airlines have grounded aircraft, due to lock downs. Others won't take people who were locked-down in a Spanish hotel, until they have had 14-day quarantine. It really is all getting a bit silly...
