A GP surgery in a busy part of north London has closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The Ritchie Street Health Centre in Islington, just a five minute walk from Angel tube station, will remain closed until Friday, according to a post on its website.
The statement reads: “Practice is closed until 14/02/2019 due to coronavirus.
“Any patients that have symptoms should call 111 and not come into the practice.”
The closure comes after a woman in London became the ninth person in Britain to test positive for the deadly virus.
The woman – a Chinese national in her 20s or 30s – presented herself to a hospital in Lewisham, south east London, on Sunday, having reportedly traveled there in an Uber.
While you're here
While you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
