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.

Yes, one of the two cases of coronavirus in the UK is a student at the University of York. The other one is a relative.

A spokesman for the university said the risk of the infection being passed on to other people on campus was low.

He said information from Public Health England "suggests that the student did not come into contact with anybody on campus whilst they had symptoms".

Hotels in Thailand are reporting bookings down to as much as 10% of last year due to the block Chinese bookings being cancelled. The Chinese accounted for 40% of tourist visitors and so a vast source of revenue is gone and businesses will struggle and crime will rise no doubt.
