A US oil company has sent 300 of its workers home from their London office amid coronavirus fears.
Chevron was on high-alert on Tuesday after an employee, who had travelled to a Covid-19 infected country, reported flu-like symptoms.
On Wednesday, the staff at the Canary Wharf base were told to work from home while the officers were put on lockdown so tests could be carried out.
The potentially-infected worker has been sent for an assessment and the result will come in over the next few days, a source told the FT.
