Thousands of people could be exposed to the coronavirus on the London Underground

Doctors warn London Underground could exacerbate the spread of coronavirus

Doctors have warned the London Underground network could be a hotbed for the spread of the strain of coronavirus known as Covid-19.

The warning comes after a London woman became the ninth person in the UK to test positive for the deadly virus.

Wednesday proved to be the disease’s deadliest day in China, with 254 deaths reported, bringing the total to more than 1,360.

In the rest of the world more than 400 cases have been confirmed across 24 countries and only two deaths have occurred outside of mainland China.
