One of the people diagnosed with coronavirus in the UK attended a conference in central London with more than 200 other delegates, according to organisers.
The person, who has not been identified, attended the UK Bus Summit at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in Westminster last Thursday.
The conference organiser, Transport Times, sent an email yesterday to all attendees to inform them of the risk, enclosing a letter from Public Health England (PHE).
“While the degree of contact you may have had with the case at the summit is unlikely to have been significant, we are taking a precautionary approach and informing you,” the letter said.
It warned attendees to take action and contact the NHS should they develop symptoms such as a fever or a cough.
