Meanwhile, people with potential coronavirus symptoms are now being asked to take part in a national survey.

Anyone who has experienced symptoms is asked to complete a status checker and answer a short series of questions which will tell the NHS about their experience.

It is open to anyone in the UK to use and health bosses are particularly keen for anyone who thinks they may be displaying potential coronavirus symptoms, no matter how mild, to complete it.

Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: "If anyone has experienced symptoms I would urge you to use our new status checker app to help us to collect essential information on the virus and allow us to better allocate NHS resources where they are needed most."
