Twelve coronavirus patients treated by two British doctors are being traced by the United Kingdom health officials, the BBC has reported.

The two doctors who came into contact with the patients worked in four different places in East and West Sussex – a nursing home, an A&E department and two GP practices.

The pair are now in isolation, and efforts to trace those that came into contact with them are ongoing.

The GP practices, in Brighton, have now reopened after a deep clean.

Worthing Hospital continues to operate as normal, a Department of Health spokeswoman said.

The nursing home – Patcham Nursing Home – has closed to visitors as a precaution, but nobody there is reported to be unwell.

One of the doctors has been named as Catriona Greenwood. She was infected by Steve Walsh who caught the virus in Singapore before staying with her and a group in a chalet in France.

The second GP has not been named.
