The deadly coronavirus is sweeping the globe and everyone has been placed on high alert to prevent the virus spreading further. More cases are being confirmed daily in the UK, parts of Italy are now sealed off and tourists at a Tenerife hotel have been advised to stay in their rooms.
Based on the World Health Organisation’s declaration that this is a public health emergency of international concern, the UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the UK from low to moderate.
Some schools in the West Midlands are closing their doors as a precaution and employees are being urged to work from home as fears grow across the country. As of February 26, a total of 7,132 people in the UK were tested for the virus, with 13 testing positive. Globally, more than 100,000 people have contracted coronavirus, resulting in more than 3,000 deaths.
What are the symptoms of coronavirus?
Patients with COVID-19 have reportedly had mild to severe respiratory illness and symptoms including:
- Shortness of breath
Britons are being urged to be vigilant and avoid contact with people who are sick and isolate themselves for 14 days if they do feel unwell. Officials also advise people to wear facemasks, cover their coughs and sneezes, clean hands thoroughly and avoid sharing personal household items. “High-touch” surfaces, such as tabletops, doorknobs, keypads and toilets etc, should also be cleaned every day.
