British nationals on the next UK government flight back from China will be taken to a conference centre in Milton Keynes for a 14-day quarantine.
Previously, UK citizens repatriated from Wuhan, the city at the centre of the coronavirus outbreak, were taken to Arrowe Park Hospital on the Wirral.
There have been three cases of coronavirus in the UK so far.
The third patient caught the virus at a business conference in Singapore, the BBC’s Hugh Pym says.
Singaporean authorities contacted the man, who is British, to warn him there had been a confirmed case.
He is thought to have tested positive for the virus in Brighton and called NHS 111 from home for advice before going by arrangement to an isolation facility at the Royal Sussex County
