A SCHOOL is teaching pupils to greet each another without shaking hands to minimise the risk of spreading coronavirus.

A video shows children at St Christopher's School in New Church Road, Hove practising the so-called 'Wuhan Shake' on the playground. 

The greeting involves tapping feet instead of shaking hands, and is being used in the Chinese city at the epicentre of the outbreak.

The video comes as 32 more cases of coronavirus were confirmed in England this morning, bringing the UK total to 85.

The private prep school for 4 to 13 year olds said on Twitter: "We are teaching our children to be aware of coronavirus; here we are practising the Wuhan Shake on the playground".
