U.K. Declares Coronavirus ‘Imminent Threat’ as Europe Scrambles - The New York Times

The newly introduced measures — which apply only in England — are among the first in Europe to allow the health authorities to keep individuals in quarantine if public health professionals believe they may be at risk of spreading the virus.
