UK police station closes after Chinese detainee displays flu-like symptoms

At least two British police stations have been closed after a Chinese detainee was found displaying "flu-like" symptoms.

Avon and Somerset Police said they shut the two stations in Bristol following the arrest of the man — who had recently returned from the city of Wuhan in China where the first cases of the deadly coronavirus disease were reported.

The force said they were advised by the NHS to close Patchway Police Centre where the man had been taken, along with Trinity Road Police Station, where officers involved in the arrest had travelled to.

Officers and members of police staff, as well as a member of the public, were ordered to stay in the building.

There were fears the detained man may have had contact with people who had recently travelled from the Wuhan area of China.
