Wuhan novel coronavirus

The latest information for the public on the outbreak of coronavirus in China, including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms, is available on the NHS website.

The UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate. But the risk to individuals remains low.

Anyone who has travelled to the UK from one of the affected areas, who has a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath should call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.

We are working very closely with our partner agencies, including Public Health England, to monitor the situation and will provide any updates as soon as we have them.

More information is also available on the website.
