UPDATE 1-UK extends COVID-19 self-isolation to 10 days from 7

Thu, 30th Jul 2020 10:18

(Adds quotes)

LONDON, July 30 (Reuters) - Anyone who tests positive or
shows symptoms of COVID-19 in Britain will have to self-isolate
for 10 days instead of the previous seven, based on a low but
tangible possibility that people could remain infectious for
longer.

"In symptomatic people COVID-19 is most infectious just
before, and for the first few days after symptoms begin," the UK
chief medical officers said in a statement on Thursday.

"Evidence, although still limited, has strengthened and
shows that people with COVID-19 who are mildly ill and are
recovering have a low but real possibility of infectiousness
between 7 and 9 days after illness onset."

The government said the change in the rule would come into
force immediately.
