#Coronavirus Update on Case #11

[An update of information on Case #11)

Novel coronavirus – a disease similar to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) – has infected four people in the UK, killing one of them.

The disease was thought to have been brought to the UK by a man that is being treated in Manchester, following a recent visit to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. His 39-year-old relative died in Birmingham on February 17.

A second relative has been treated for a mild form of the illness, with a further 100 people that had been in close contact with the family having been tested and given the all-clear.
