Two health care workers who were involved within the treatment of those confirmed to have coronavirus have tested positive this morning.

While advice remains in place that simple hand washing can reduce the spread of the virus.

In total four people have tested positive for coronavirus in the UK this morning. Which now brings the total cases within the UK to eight.

The Telegraph has reported that a British patient has been threatening to abscond from a coronavirus facility which has forced the Health Secretary to tighten quarantine rules within the United Kingdom.

Now people can be forced to be detained under the new health powers to prevent the spread.

Matt Hancock has today declared the spread of the virus as a “serious and imminent threat” to public health.

He announced greater powers to fight the spread of the virus across the UK.

A Department of Health statement said: “The Secretary of State has made regulations to ensure that the public are protected as far as possible from the transmission of the virus.

“The Secretary of State declares that the incidence or transmission of novel coronavirus constitutes a serious and imminent threat to public health, and the measures outlined in these regulations are considered as an effective means of delaying or preventing further transmission of the virus.”
