Staff waiting for emergency services to arrive keep their distance from the woman
A coronavirus scare at one of Britain’s busiest railway stations took place in secret last night as Brexit celebrations were held all over the city.
Masked workers set up a cordon around a woman who was sitting in a row of seats at Paddington station, in central London on late Friday night, two passengers had earlier fell ill during a “suspected virus outbreak”.
Staff were keeping their distance from the woman while she was seated close to a Great Western Railway customer service desk. It is unknown yet if she had if been on a train, which would cause major concerns.
Paramedics arrived in two ambulances just before 11pm and transported two people to hospital, but health officials would not say if they were tested for the SARS-like virus, although a close source reported that they were quickly sent into a special medical facility set up exactly for this purpose in London.
More to follow as we learn of their condition, hopefully, tests will come back negative.
