FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Deutsche Bank (DBKGn.DE) has dispersed some of its trading and infrastructure teams in London across different locations as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus, the lender said on Monday.

The split is among the bank’s main offices and a disaster recovery site while some staff may work from home, the bank said.

The move is similar to those by a number of the world’s leading banks.

Deutsche had already imposed such measures in locations including China, Italy and Switzerland.
