United Kingdom tells citizens to leave China over coronavirus fears

United Kingdom tells citizens to leave China over coronavirus fears”

"Where there are still British nationals in Hubei province who wish to be evacuated, we will continue to work around the clock to facilitate this", he added.

According to a statement by Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, the safety and security of British people will always be the government's top priority. They are now in isolation for 14 days.

As per reports, the White House on Monday said China has finally agreed to accept the offer to have health experts from the United States as part of a World Health Organization (WHO) mission to study and help combat the virus.

Travel warnings have come into place for China as coronavirus, otherwise known as 2019-nCoV, infects more than 20,000 people.

The British Foreign Office also said that it would be recalling some staff and dependents from the British Embassy and consulates.

A British man who fears he contracted coronavirus said he is isolated in his apartment in Wuhan and has been given no indication of when he will be able to leave the city.

They said: "The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Hubei Province due to the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak".

Several others are continuing to operate flights, including Air China, China Southern Airlines, and Shenzhen Airlines.

He said he had not been able to make the recent flights back to the United Kingdom because his passport had been given to the Chinese government to extend his residency permit.

He said the Foreign Office's crisis team in London had told him "to be patient and they will be in touch if anything changes".

The first group arrived back in the United Kingdom on Friday, and the second on Monday, as Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the House of Commons the virus would likely stick around for "months" to come.

Last week, the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the outbreak of coronavirus as a global emergency.

The UK is among those screening incoming passengers, and the government recently quarantined people returning to the country from Wuhan.

The Department of Health said on Monday that 326 United Kingdom tests for coronavirus have concluded, of which 324 are negative.

However, the World Health Organization (WHO) said it does not yet qualify as a "pandemic". The university assured students they "are not at risk and no further precautionary measures are necessary".

Nick Phin, PHE's National Infection Service deputy director, said: "All of the individuals who were on this flight are now in supervised isolation and are being monitored for symptoms".

Three people who returned to Kerala from China have been diagnosed with the coronavirus pneumonia.
