There have been more than 22,000 cases of coronavirus in the UK. This is where the cases have been around the country.

The Department of Health and Social Care's latest figures showed 22,141 cases of coronavirus in the UK, with 1,408 deaths.

However, these are just the number of cases that have been tested - the real number of cases is likely to be substantially higher than this.

Official figures
England:
18,594 cases
Scotland:
1,563 cases
Wales:
1,451 cases
Northern Ireland:

How to protect yourself from coronavirus

People need to reinvoke the slogan "Catch it, bin it, kill it, wash your hands". That is the simple answer because it's a respiratory illness.

You should treat it in the same way you treat a cold: use alcohol-based anti-bacterial soaps and sprays, avoid touching their eyes, nose and mouth and avoid contact with people who are infected.

Professor John Oxford told LBC the old-fashioned way of stopping viruses is the best defence here: "The only way to stop it is physical cleaning and social distance - keeping away from people. Once they are close together in taxis or small rooms, then there may be a problem."

What are the symptoms of coronavirus?

The symptoms are similar to a common cold, including:
- headache
- cough
- fever
- shortness of breath
- chills
- body aches

In most cases, you won't know whether you have a Coronavirus or a cold-causing virus, such as rhinovirus.

But if a Coronavirus infection spreads to the lower respiratory tract, such as your lungs, it can cause pneumonia, especially in older people.
