Coronavirus: Britons told to leave China ? BBC News

British citizens in China should leave the country, if they can, to minimise the risk of exposure to the Coronavirus, according to official advice published by the UK Foreign Office.

Work is continuing to bring home Britons from Hubei province, where the outbreak began. So far 427 people have died from the virus, all but two in mainland China, with more than 20 thousand cases confirmed in 26 countries.

The number of cases is thought to be doubling every few days but the World Health Organization says it still does not amount to a 'pandemic'.

John Sudworth and Tulip Mazumdar report for the BBC News at Ten, presented by Huw Edwards.
