London is the “worst affected “city with coronavirus in the UK as at least 25 people have died in the capital and there are 621 cases.
According to England’s chief scientific advisor, Sir Patrick Vallance for every death there could be at least 1,000 people that have coronavirus, meaning at least 25,000 Londoners could be infected with coronavirus.
The total number of coronavirus cases has soared to 1,950 across the UK, up by 407 in 24 hours. The number of deaths has risen to 71 across the UK, up by 14.
The patients in England were aged between 93 and 45-years old, all had underlying health conditions.
Hospitals across London are already struggling to cope with the large number of confirmed cases, and the fear is even greater as it is unknown how many people are infected, as most are not being tested.
England’s deputy chief medical officer Professor Jonathan Van-Tam warned that everyone must adopt “social distancing and self-isolation” to prevent other people “being killed by Covid-19.”
The Foreign Secretary, Dominic Raab has warned Britons on Tuesday, to “avoid all non-essential foreign travel for 30 days,” as the coronavirus pandemic grows.
He said, “UK travellers abroad now face widespread international border restrictions and lockdowns in various countries.”
