Coronavirus: 12 Confirmed Cases In Jersey

12 islanders have now tested positive for the coronavirus.

384 people in Jersey have been tested so far, with 372 results coming back negative and 38 still to be confirmed.

It was confirmed yesterday that the virus is now being transmitted between islanders after two people with no travel history were diagnosed.

Jersey's General Hospital is now closed to visitors while two patients with the virus are treated.

 Coronavirus Advice

If you think you might have the virus, you should self-isolate and call the Health Department's coronavirus helpline:

01534 445566

It's open every day between 8am and 8pm. Calls outside these times, or when the line is engaged, won't be answered straight away - but we're told to leave a message and Health officials will call you back.

Please don't visit your GP or the Emergency Department at the General Hospital if you think you have the virus.

Coronavirus symptoms are similar to that of the flu - a combination of a cough, fever and aching muscles. If you've had any symptoms, even if you haven't travelled abroad, we're being told to self-isolate until they clear up (for a minimum of seven days).

Anyone who has come into contact with a person confirmed to have the coronavirus should stay in self-isolation for at least 14 days.

All the latest information can be found on Gov.je.
