Coronavirus: Europe at the epicentre of the pandemic - BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
The World Health Organisation says Europe is now the epicentre, of the global coronavirus pandemic. The news emerged as organised sport, both professional and amateur, across much of the UK, came to a standstill because of the outbreak.

The Premier League, English Football League and Scottish Football Association have all called a temporary halt to fixtures until the 3rd of April. In rugby, all Six Nations matches have been cancelled this weekend, and next month's London Marathon, has been postponed.

The advice now in the UK is that if you have a high temperature, or a new persistent dry cough, then you should self-isolate, for 7 days.

Meanwhile in the US Donald Trump has declared a "national emergency" in the United States in response to the threat from coronavirus. Responding to criticism, he said many more Americans would be tested for the virus -- and said his administration's overriding goal was to stop the spread of the disease.

Fergus Walsh, Dan Roan, Vicki Young and Nick Bryant report for the News at Ten presented by Clive Myrie.

I'm italian, we're all quarantined in our houses and we're afraid of this virus. Hope that you can learn from us and take seriously actions before the situation get worse. Maybe we'll learn something from this when all will be over.

FYI, those infected ones with no symptoms are the ones that are most contagious.
