It comes as it emerged that the woman who is the UK's ninth case of coronavirus took an Uber to A&E after she developed symptoms.

According to media reports, the latest patient is a Chinese woman who had recently arrived in the UK.

The patient opted to take the ride-sharing service Sunday to Lewisham Hospital, the place she underwent checks for the brand new coronavirus, Sky Information reported.

"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.

Dr Michael Head, of the University of Southampton, added: 'Of the 1,750 tests carried out so far in the United Kingdom, more than 99 per cent have come back negative for coronavirus'.

Two staff from Lewisham Hospital in south London are now in isolation at home after coming into contact with the woman.

Public Health England (PHE) confirmed on Wednesday it has traced and advised all close contacts of the two Global Positioning System, including about 12 patients.
