The Novel Corona Virus spares none, not even the nobles. Prince of Wales, Charles, has been tested positive for Covid-19. In a recent statement, the Clarence House informed that he had been “displaying mild symptoms” and is currently self-quarantined in Birkhall, Scotland, and Duchess of Cornwall is tested negative. However, Prince Charles is continuing to work from home. It is hard to ascertain the source of infection as Prince Charles went to many congregations and forums for the last few weeks. Moreover, Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth II are in self-isolation at Windsor Castle.
The Clarence House statement reads, “The Prince has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health, and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual.”
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman wished the Prince a speedy recovery. He told that the weekly audience between the Queen and the Prime Minister remains limited to the telephonic conversation.
Eleven thousand positive cases have been confirmed throughout the UK with London hospitals, especially, deluging with coronavirus cases.
