London subway could be breeding ground for coronavirus ― UK doctors

14 Février, 2020, 07:29 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

While the risk to the general public remains low, a confirmed case in London raised concerns that there could be more cases in the densely populated area.

The U.K.'s most recent patient contracted the virus while in China and Professor Paul Cosford, director for Health Protection and medical director for Public Health England, told BBC they expect more cases involving global travelers.

"That is exacerbated by the truth that London is a transport hub, and the underground might present a community to unfold the virus rapidly".

Whereas the affected person has now been quarantined, Dr Thompson says the danger of the virus spreading relies on the girl's interactions previous to being positioned in isolation.

'The key factor here is the number of contacts that this infected individual has had prior to being isolated, ' he said.

'If this is low, then the risk of sustained human-to-human transmission is also low'.

As Public Health England investigates the patient's movements, Dr Nathalie MacDermott from the National Institute for Health Research said London commuters should continue to go about their business as usual.

United Kingdom doctors believe that the subway of such a major transport hub as London could be especially vulnerable to the spread of the new coronavirus, media reported on Thursday. Is the virus on its way out?

"I would like to thank the clinical team who treated Mr Walsh in hospital, as well as all the NHS staff who are working hard with other health organisations to limit the spread of coronavirus and treat the small numbers who have contracted the illness", he added.

Experts previously warned that highly contagious coronavirus carriers known as "super spreaders" could make the new outbreak more unpredictable and tougher to contain.

"What we need to do is less of the handshaking, hugging, kissing, that sort of thing, because this virus looks like its spread by ordinary tidal breathing, not necessarily colds and coughing".

The US has recorded at least 13 infections, and one US citizen died in China.

Officials know the pair worked at a nursing home, the A&E unit at Worthing Hospital in West Sussex, and two GP practices between them.

During a press conference on Tuesday, WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said China's effort to contain the virus was the reason there have been so few worldwide cases.

Of the 44,730 cases in China, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed 33,366 were in the Hubei Province, where Wuhan is located.
