Burbage Primary School in Buxton is also closed for a deep clean following a confirmed case of the virus ‘among the parent population'

It is not known at this stage whether this is the same case as the one referred to by the medical practice.

Two patients who contracted coronavirus on a cruise liner in Japan are currently being treated at the Specialist Infectious Diseases Unit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield.
