Coronavirus: Recent travellers from Wuhan to UK told to self-isolate

Officials are still searching for 1,460 people who have landed in the UK from the province where the virus broke out.

Anyone in the UK who has recently arrived from Wuhan – where the deadly coronavirus broke out – is now being urged to “self-isolate”.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock announced that any travellers who have returned from the Chinese city in the last two weeks should stay indoors, avoid contact with other people and contact the NHS 111 service.


They should also stay off public transport, although it is okay for friends and family to bring parcels or medicines.
