Nationwide hunt is launched for anyone who came into contact with Britain’s first coronavirus victims: Two Chinese tourists are diagnosed after falling ill at a York hotel

Authorities in the UK have launched a nation-wide hunt for anyone who came into contact with Britain’s first two coronavirus patients.

The pair, believed to be Chinese nationals, had been staying at a budget hotel in York which remained open on Friday because officials reportedly refused to tell the owners their guests were the coronavirus patients.

Paul Hunter, a professor of medicine at the University of East Anglia, has blasted the Government’s ‘worrying’ response after it emerged the £49-a-night Staycity hotel has remained open since a Chinese man fell ill there on Wednesday night and rooms can still be booked for tonight.
