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.

I don’t think repatriation should be on the cards either.. quarantine them all, why take the risk?

 

That picture of the bus driver made me laugh.. he's a superhero

@pgn 

Mmmm...different countries feel that masks do help, particularly when in cities already known to have the virus. Mixed reports though.

On the news tonight it has been reported that government officials in Wuhan are using drones to seek out people NOT wearing masks.

A little more about wearing masks here...

I think driving a bus in a bio suit would be almost impossible so yes, the bus drivers are definitely heroes. I hope they are getting heroic wages.

It's a particularly nasty blighter, whatever way it interferes with your lungs... 

 

Novel Coronavirus and Pneumonia

 

Astounded

 

Not clear if this is a secondary infection, but viral pneumonia is a bit hard to evict - antibiotics no use.
