By JForrester 26 Jan 2020

Coronavirus is an avian influenza. Based on the latest information and analysis, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said that there is evidence of limited human to human transmission of the virus. The risk to the UK population is very low, but please take a look at this guidance for your safety.

Advice for University students

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all but essential travel to Wuhan city, Hubei Province. More information is available on their Travel Advice web page.

If you’re travelling to Wuhan, you should maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene, and should avoid visiting animal and bird markets or people who are ill with respiratory symptoms.

If you develop respiratory symptoms within 14 days of visiting Wuhan, either in China or on your return to the UK, you should seek medical attention.

Call 111 to contact the NHS 111 Service. The operator will be able to give you advice and support and help you take appropriate action if necessary. Make sure you tell your health service about your recent travel to the city before you attend any appointment.

Further information and guidance

See Public Health England’s Wuhan novel coronavirus and avian flu: advice for travel to China for further information and advice.

The University will continue to monitor the situation carefully. If there is any change to the current advice, this web page will be updated.
