Wuhan Novel Coronavirus: information for the public

BBC News Website

A coronavirus is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. Typical symptoms of coronavirus include fever and a cough that may progress to a severe pneumonia causing shortness of breath and breathing difficulties.

Generally, coronavirus can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease.

Wuhan novel coronavirus is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China.

The government is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to work with the World Health Organization (WHO) and international community.

The government’s approach is guided by the advice of the Chief Medical Officer.

If and when a first case in the UK is confirmed, it will be announced as soon as possible by the Chief Medical Officer of the affected country. This will be followed by a statement by England’s Chief Medical Officer, Professor Chris Whitty.

If you have visited Wuhan city in China recently and need to see a Doctor please let reception team know before you come in to the surgery so that we can allocate you in a seperate room away from other patients.

You can read more about the Wuhan Novel Corinavirus in the link below.
