The number of cases of coronavirus in the UK has now reached 163, the government has confirmed.
The latest figure includes 147 cases in England, 11 in Scotland, three in Northern Ireland and two in Wales.
The Department of Health said as of 7:00 GMT on Friday, more than 20,000 people had been tested.
The UK’s first death linked to the virus was announced on Thursday, after a woman in her 70s with underlying health conditions died in hospital.
As well as her death in the UK, a British man also died from the virus in Japan last month after being infected on the Diamond Princess cruise ship.
