The patient is said to be a Chinese national who was diagnosed this afternoon. It is the first time a person has been confirmed to have the disease in London
A woman has become the first person to be diagnosed with coronavirus in London, according to reports. The patient, who is understood to have developed symptoms after arriving at Heathrow Airport from China, is being treated at a hospital in the capital. A source told The Sun that a patient had been diagnosed with the deadly disease - which has killed more than 1,000 and infected thousands more around the world. Chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty has confirmed the ninth case of coronavirus in the UK, but not revealed where the patient was diagnosed. He said: "One further patient in England has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the total number of cases in the UK to nine. "This virus was passed on in China and the patient has now been transferred to a specialist NHS centre at Guy's and St Thomas' in London."
