Coronavirus

Update on the on-going situation and  recent posters which have been issued from Public Health England (PHE).

Each poster set includes a version in English and a Mandarin translation.

The new coronavirus was first reported in Wuhan City, China, on 31 December 2019, and has since been detected in travellers to other countries. There are currently three confirmed cases in the UK. The government is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to work with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the international community.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses some causing less-severe disease, including the common cold, and others causing more severe disease such as Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). People with Wuhan novel coronavirus (WN-CoV), are presenting with a fever, and respiratory symptoms including a cough, shortness of breath, rapid breathing, a sore throat, or a runny nose.
