Coronavirus Alert

CORONAVIRUS panic has hit London after it emerged that Britain’s ninth confirmed patient had attended a central London summit in the days before going to hospital.

The Chinese woman was among 250 guests at the UK Bus Summit at the QEII Centre in Westminster on Monday – three days before heading to Lewisham Hospital in an Uber. Public Health England has since sent a letter to everyone who attended the event, warning them of the risks of contamination. They said: “While the degree of contact you may have had with the case at the summit is unlikely to have been significant, we are taking a precautionary approach and informing you.”

Guests were told to self-isolate for two weeks if they developed symptoms.

Boris Johnson’s’ Buses Minister Baroness Vere of Norbiton delivered a keynote speech.

Lilian Greenwood, Nottingham South MP , and Gareth Powell, the head of Transport for London’s bus network, were also in attendance.

The Uber driver’s account has been temporarily suspended, reports suggest.
