He said: "Delay is the next stage of what we need to do because if we are going to get an outbreak in the United Kingdom - this is an if, not a when - but if we do, putting it back in time into the summer period, away from winter pressures on the NHS, buying us a bit more time to understand the virus better... is a big advantage".

The woman was sent home pending the results of her test before being taken to another hospital in London, St Thomas', for treatment on Wednesday, Sky News reported.

Dave Smith, the chair of the Royal College of Nursing's Emergency Care Association, said: "It's worrying to hear that the public aren't following Public Health England advice about phoning NHS 111 to seek advice, and therefore putting other members of the public and NHS staff at risk of contracting coronavirus". Today it arised that even more than 750 British individuals were examined for coronavirus in someday as panic over the break out magnified throughout the nation.

Steve Walsh, 53, contracted the virus in Singapore while at a business conference before going to the French Alps for a ski holiday, then returning to his home in Hove, East Sussex.

He was diagnosed on February 6.

"I'm happy to be home and feeling well", he said in a statement, according to Yahoo.

He added: "Worryingly, people are more likely to share bad advice on social media, than good advice from trusted sources such as the NHS, Public Health England or the World Health Organisation".

British coronavirus "super spreader" Steve Walsh who may have infected almost a dozen other people has been released from hospital.

All of the group - who had signed a contract agreeing to the quarantine period - have tested negative for the virus.

Experts previously warned that highly contagious coronavirus carriers known as "super spreaders" could make the new outbreak more unpredictable and tougher to contain.

There are still no confirmed or suspected cases of coronavirus in New Zealand, the Director-General of Health says.

On Wednesday the test came back positive setting off a chain of events.

The woman, thought to be a Chinese nationalist who had recently traveled to London from China, was immediately given a face mask and transferred to the hospital's special testing area.
