Queen Elizabeth to Continue Carrying Out Light Duties as She Recovers from the Coronavirus
On Sunday, Feb. 20, the Palace reported that the Queen tested positive for Covid-19. Prior to the confirmation, there had been fears that Her Majesty may have contracted the virus as her eldest son, Prince Charles, met her two days before he was diagnosed with the disease.
At this point, she only has mild “cold-like” symptoms and will continue carrying out light duties. Buckingham Palace
reported that the Queen’s condition will be monitored closely in case it changes in the future. It is also understood that Her Majesty “will follow all the appropriate guidelines”.
However, sources are speculating that she must not have been heavily affected as she’s continuing to carry out “light duties”.
Nevertheless, the Prime Minister Boris Johnson shared a candid message wishing the Queen a speedy recovery. “I’m sure I speak for everyone in wishing Her Majesty The Queen a swift recovery from Covid and a rapid return to vibrant good health,” he wrote on Twitter. His message was echoed by a number of political figures from different major parties.
A number of cases have been diagnosed amongst staff at Windsor Castle.
Boris Johnson also told Brits to brace themselves since it’s now clear the coronavirus will not “suddenly disappear”.
