Health protection workers have established that the patient being treated for novel coronavirus at a Manchester hospital had recently travelled to the Middle East and Pakistan, the Health Protection Agency (HPA) said.
Professor John Watson of the HPA said last week, "Our assessment is that the risk associated with novel coronavirus to the general UK population remains extremely low and the risk to travellers to the Arabian Peninsula and surrounding countries remains very low".
"People who develop severe respiratory symptoms, such as shortness of breath, within ten days of returning from these countries should seek medical advice and mention which countries they have visited", he added.
