Daniel Elkeles, chief executive officer, for Epsom and St. Helier University hospitals, NHS Trust said the patient “is very ill with a number of significant long-term health conditions.”

Earlier today, it was revealed that a fourth person had died of the virus during treatment at Royal Wolverhampton Hospital.

The woman was 70 years old and had underlying health conditions.

He is believed to have caught the deadly insect in Britain while the authorities are quick to track down anyone who has had contact.

The Department of Health and Welfare today announced that 46 other people in the UK have shown themselves to be positive as the killer bug is raging across Europe.

In the UK, 321 people have now tested positive for Covid 19.

Boris Johnson said today that the United Kingdom will almost certainly pass the delayed phase in the fight against coronavirus.

Johnson said they “do not hide from the fact that the coronavirus epidemic will present significant challenges for the UK, just as it does in other countries.”

He added: “But if we continue to look for each other, to come together in a united and national effort, I have no doubt that we can and will respond to that challenge”.

The UK remains in the “phase” of the coronavirus response “but looking at what is happening around the world, our scientists think containment is extremely unlikely to work alone,” he continued.

Chris Whitty, England’s chief medical officer, said anyone who has symptoms of cold, flu or fever will likely be asked to stay in solitary confinement at home for too long.

Meanwhile, U.S. authorities are planning to return the British on board the virus-stricken Grand Princess cruise ship on Tuesday, the Foreign Office reported.

There are 142 British people on the ship, who spent five days stranded off the coast.

Nearly 25,000 people in Britain have been tested for coronavirus, the vast majority have tested negative.

The most recent figures show that 61 confirmed cases in the UK are located in London, with 43 in the south east, 38 in the south west and 35 in the north west of England.

Another 31 people tested positive in the Midlands, with 24 in the east of England and 22 in the north-east and Yorkshire.

In the meantime, Welsh health authorities have confirmed two more cases – bringing the total to Wales to six – while Scotland has confirmed five more, bringing the Scottish total to 23.

Yesterday it was revealed that a third victim had died from the deadly virus in Britain.

The man in his sixties, who had underlying health problems, died at North Manchester General Hospital recently returned from Italy.

Staff, patients and their families said they were “frightened” after the man died.

A male doctor said, “Apparently he was in poor health when he arrived at the hospital. He took over very quickly and deteriorated quickly. The staff is worried if it has spread.

“People are only afraid of their families, but the infectious unit is very safe and the staff are used to handling this type of thing.”

Mom of two, Sheila Browne, 34, who was waiting to visit her mother, said, “It’s very worrying. My mom is a pensioner, so we’re worried.

“But I hope it hasn’t spread, but people in the hospital seem anxious.”

KILLER BUG

Public Health England will continue to track close contacts of anyone diagnosed with Covid-19 in the containment phase, advising them to self-isolate themselves at home to delay the spread of the virus.

Moving on to the next late stage would mean that social removal measures could be introduced – such as limiting public meetings and popular councils for staying at home.

One of those who tested positive for the virus yesterday was a healthcare professional at the University Hospital of Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.

A statement on the HSHSFT website said: “A healthcare professional who worked a single night shift in our highly addicted surgical unit on Friday March 6 gave coronavirus positive results. They are now isolated at home.

“The small number of patients and staff who have come into close contact with this individual have been informed and will be appropriately isolated.”

Transportation to London also confirmed that a staff member turned out to be positive, while a student at Rugby School self-insulated himself at home after the virus was diagnosed.

100,000 FEAR OF DEATH

The jump in cases came after a “worst case scenario” of 100,000 deaths was revealed by the Sunday Times overnight.

An official involved in the planning said: “The central estimate of deaths is around 100,000.

“Everyone has focused on the worst case, but that’s what the experts really expect to happen. Some of those people would have died from other shots.”

Boris Johnson insisted that medical advice did not indicate “no need for people to buy stuff” as the British begin to panic to buy canned food amid fears that they will be stuck for 14 days.

The UK government is trying to prepare the public without widespread concern, with ministers already nervous about the effect on the economy.

Former Chancellor Tory Philip Hammond said the spread of the virus has the potential to push the UK into recession and suggested that it could pose a greater risk to the economy than a no-deal Brexit.

All of Italy has been blocked this evening as the country tries to contain the coronavirus epidemic.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said that the “decree on staying at home” had been authorized because the country “no longer had time” and added that all public meetings would be banned.

He said that the country’s football championship will be stopped and that movements across the country would only be allowed if “absolutely necessary for work or health”.

Italy has the largest number of confirmed cases outside of China at 7,375, and its death toll is 366.

DEATH OF CORONAVIRUS

On Friday, an 83-year-old great-grandfather became the second person to die in the UK after testing positive for coronavirus.

The victim was admitted to Milton Keynes Hospital with pneumonia on March 3 and was described as “someone older” who had “basic health conditions”.

His family claims that doctors didn’t detect the deadly disease and let him cough in an open ward before his death.

Sun Online includes 10 hospital staff members and five patients were placed in solitary confinement after his death.

A source said: “He was coughing excessively and another patient in the ward complained to a nurse who should have checked him for coronavirus.

“The nurse told him not to worry about it and to be treated.”

The first death occurred on Thursday when a 75-year-old woman passed away after testing positive for Covid-19.

Health leaders reported that the woman had suffered from underlying health conditions and was “in and out of the hospital” before she died at Reading’s Royal Berkshire Hospital.

The government previously revealed a £ 46 million emergency package to help find a coronavirus vaccine and develop a faster test for the virus.

But there are fears that the disease could peak around Easter and last for six months, with millions of people expected to become infected.

Sir Patrick Vallance, chief scientific adviser to the government, warned that Britain was at the beginning of an outbreak.

He said: “We have cases all over Europe, all over the world, this is a global epidemic and we would expect to see more cases in the UK.

“We have a worst-case scenario … involving 80% of the population and we think the mortality rate is 1% or lower. I expect it to be lower than that.

“It takes around 12 weeks to peak, so maybe around 12 weeks to go away again.

“You expect about 90% of the cases in the nine weeks in the middle and 50% of the cases in the three weeks in the middle.”

Until now most cases have been grouped around people who have returned to the UK from aboard.

But now – with the skyrocketing rate of cases – the person-to-person outbreak in communities has caught on.

Elderly patients are the most vulnerable to the virus, with mortality rates around 9% – one in 11 people – recorded so far in people over the age of 80.

In children and adults under the age of 30 the mortality rate drops to less than one in 500 cases.

The Department of Health said over 24,500 people have been tested for the virus in the UK.
