UK preparing for ‘significant’ spread of coronavirus
LONDON – On Thursday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman announced that British officials are accelerating preparations for the coronavirus outbreak’s next face.
They expect the coronavirus to spread in a “significant way”.
“It is now highly likely that the virus is going to spread in a significant way. Officials will therefore accelerate work on preparations for the ‘delay’ phase of the government’s plan, focusing on steps we could take to seek to delay the spread of the virus.”
