Britain is the newest country to confirm the deadly virus on its shores. Two members of the same family got the Chinese bug.
This is triggering fear there may be more Britons with the virus among the 2000 recent visitors to Wuhan.
The authorities are on a hunt for the 2000 Britons who came back to the country. They say there is ‘stark fears of more victims across the UK.’
Health authorities are not disclosing who the Britons are. They are however, evacuating the people from Wirral, Merseyside.
The infection makes England the 23rd country or territory outside of China to declare the infection.
The next step the authorities are taking is to “work rapidly to identify any contacts the patients had, to prevent further spread.”
