All but one of the nine UK patients who tested positive for the Covid-19 coronavirus have been discharged from hospital, NHS England has said.
Some of the first Britons to catch the deadly disease, which has so far killed 1,527 people and infected 67,091, caught the killer infection in a French ski chalet from a Brighton man who stayed at the same resort.

In York, a university student and his mother were tested positive for the virus.
The latest victim, who was diagnosed in London on February 12, is thought to have flown into the UK from China a few days ago, with officials confirming she caught the virus in China.
It is unclear which of the nine patients remains in hospital.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said earlier this week that the coronavirus outbreak is a ‘serious and imminent’ threat to the British public.
