Wash your hands’, it’s ‘much better than a face mask’ – Health Secretary

Health Secretary Matt Hancock warned today that Britain will be battling coronavirus for ‘months to come’ with the number of cases doubling every five days.

It comes as 11 British nationals flew into RAF Brize Norton on Sunday to join another 83 already quarantined on the Wirral. However, one passenger was isolated and rushed to hospital in Oxford after falling ill on the plane.

Mr Hancock told the Commons today: ‘Health ministers from G7 countries spoke and we agreed to coordinate our evidence and response wherever possible.

‘Currently, the number of cases is doubling around every five days and it’s clear that the virus will be with us for at least some months to come. This is a marathon, not a sprint.’
