The chinese woman infected with the coronavirus had attended the conference at the QEII Centre

A woman infected with the coronavirus had attended a conference in London that had more than 250 delegates, among those speaking in the QEII centre in Westminster was Boris Johnson’s buses minister Baroness Vere of Norbiton.

An email was hastily sent to 200-plus delegates warning them to ‘self-isolate’ if they feel ill, a message repeated nationally today by the NHS.

Less than three days after the conference the woman, a Chinese national, fell ill and took an Uber to University Hospital Lewisham, she is now in isolation at St Thomas’ hospital near London Bridge and her condition has not yet been revealed.

Her presence in central London at a packed conference will spark fears among the hundreds of people there from the transport industry amid growing public anxiety about the spread of the deadly bug, which has infected 64,441 people worldwide and killed 1,383.
