Two more people have tested positive for coronavirus in England. The two patients have been transferred to specialist NHS infection centres after contracting the virus in Italy and Tenerife, according to England's chief medical officer Professor Chris Whitty.
The new cases bring the total number of people diagnosed with Covid-19 in the UK to 15.
Authorities in Italy have reported that the number of people infected in the country grew to 447 and 12 people have died, while Denmark reported its first case.
Prof Whitty said: "Two further patients in England have tested positive for Covid-19, bringing the total number of UK cases to 15.
"The virus was passed on in Italy and Tenerife and the patients have been transferred to specialist NHS infection centres in Royal Liverpool Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital, London."
One of the cases is understood to be a parent from Burbage Primary School in Buxton, Derbyshire, who caught the virus while in Tenerife.
Some 168 Britons in Tenerife are currently confined to the H10 Costa Adeje Palace in the south west of the island, after at least four guests were diagnosed with coronavirus.
Parents were told Burbage Primary would be closed on Thursday due to a "confirmed case of coronavirus amongst our parent population".
The school, which has 350 pupils, sent a message to parents via WhatsApp on Wednesday night saying the decision had been taken as a "precautionary measure and to enable a deep clean to be completed".
Buxton Medical Practice in Derbyshire, a two-minute drive from the school, urged patients not to attend on Thursday due to a confirmed case of coronavirus.
In a message to patients, a spokesman said: "We have a confirmed case of the coronavirus.
"We are liaising with Public Health England and the Clinical Commissioning Group to ensure all appropriate actions are taken.
"Please do not come to the practice."
