Last week, the number of confirmed UK cases of Coronavirus rose from 4 to 8. This increased number of cases has led the government to declare a ‘serious and imminent threat’ to public health, giving authorities additional powers to fight the spread of the disease, including enforced quarantine. Over 40,000 cases of the virus have now been reported globally, while the number of deaths in China now exceeds 900.
As Coronavirus continues to cause disruption, read more on how data and digital can help in the latest outbreak.
