At the Ministry of Health, we monitor disease outbreaks and health emergencies at home and abroad, including Dengue, Chikungunya and TB, through to emerging threats such as the outbreak of the novel (new) coronavirus in Wuhan, China.

This is a rapidly evolving situation which we are monitoring carefully but based on the available evidence, the current risk to the BVI population is low/medium.

Here are answers to some of the questions many people have. We’ll update this information as new information becomes available.
