The World Health Organisation defines coronaviruses (CoV) as a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more serious illnesses such as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome).
This particular virus has been named COVID–19. It first appeared in December 2019 in Wuhan, China and has since spread worldwide.
There has been an outbreak of COVID-19 related to The Downsman pub in Southgate. Read our statement in full.
We have also published some questions and answers about the outbreak.
