The city’s first case of CORONAvirus COVID-19 has been identified in London. This was announced on February 12 by the British Ministry of Health.
“Analysis of another patient in England tested positive for a new coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total number of cases in the UK to nine,” said the country’s chief sanitary officer, Chris Witty.
It is noted that the new patient contracted the virus in China. It is now located in London’s dedicated NHS center.
