It comes as two more people with the virus died in the UK, bringing the total to eight. One was in their 70's and had underlying health conditions in Dudley, while the other, in Nuneaton, was elderly and had a number of serious health conditions.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the peak of the UK outbreak was expected "in a matter of a couple of months". It comes as the World Health Organization upgraded the status of the outbreak to a pandemic.
It is now evident that the financial effects will be worse than health concerns. Now is the time to prepare.

The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can one know if he/she is infected? By the time they have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% Fibrosis and it's too late.
Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning. Take a deep breath and hold your breath for more than 10 seconds. If you complete it successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, etc., it proves there is no Fibrosis in the lungs, basically indicates no infection. In critical time, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.
Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why? Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water more regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and into the lungs. That's very dangerous. Please send and share this with family and friends. Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon.
