Background

On 12 January 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed that a novel coronavirus was the cause of a respiratory illness in a cluster of people in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China, which was reported to the WHO on 31 December 2019. [7] [8]

The case fatality rate for COVID-19 has been much lower than SARS of 2003, [9] [10] but the transmission has been significantly greater, with a significant total death toll. [11] [9] From 19 March, Public Health England no longer classified COVID-19 as a "High consequence infectious disease". [10]
