As of March 19, the number of UK coronavirus cases has risen to 1,543. Professor Chris Whitty, England’s Chief Medical Officer, said on March 12 that he expects the UK would reach the peak of its coronavirus outbreak in about 10 to 14 weeks.
What is self-isolation?
The NHS is currently advising you to self-isolate for seven days if you have symptoms of coronavirus, like a high temperature, or a new continuous cough.
If you have travelled to a badly affected area, or have been in contact with someone with the disease, you will also need to self-isolate.
The Government website reads: “Staying at home while you have coronavirus (COVID-19) helps to protect your friends, colleagues and the wider community.
“It will also help to control the spread of the virus.”
