Since then, the virus has spread around the world and on to our shores, although currently contained to a small number of cases.

To combat the spread of the virus, now deemed by the government to be a "serious and imminent threat to public health", the NHS and NHS Wales have released advice on how to protect yourself and others:

"If you have returned from travel within the following countries in the past 14 days:

Recent guidance recommends that all travelers who develop relevant symptoms, however mild, within 14 days of returning from the ABOVE countries should self-isolate at home immediately and call NHS Direct Wales on 0845 4647."

The statement concludes by asking the people who may be affected do not attend their local GP or A&E. This comes after a GP surgery has had to close due to two healthcare workers testing positive for the disease.
