Coronavirus begins to spread wider within the UK affecting more people

England’s top doctor has said efforts to battle coronavirus have now entered the next phase to reduce the speed at which the disease is spreading – rather than contain it. Professor Chris Whitty is appearing before the Health and Social Care Committee today where he is being grilled about how well Britain is prepared for the outbreak as the number of infected jumps over 100.
On the spread of the virus, Prof Whitty said there would be ‘some risk of transmission’ from touching hand rails and hard surfaces for up to 72 hours.
He added: ‘Just touching it will not give you the virus: it is if you touch it and then touch your face, having not washed your hands between them. ‘So, if you go on to the Tube and touch the rail, that’s fine, but just be aware of what you do with your hands – don’t touch your face, wash your hands, and then you can do what you like.’ Prof Whitty warned that a vaccine is likely to take at least a year to develop.
