Queen Elizabeth Tests Positive For Covid-19

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for the coronavirus, Buckingham Palace announced today [Feb 20].

The 95-year-old is “experiencing mild cold-like symptoms” but expects to continue light duties at Windsor over the coming week, the palace said, adding that “she will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all appropriate guidelines.”

“The Queen, 95, had been in contact with her eldest son and heir, the Prince of Wales, who tested positive last week,” the BBC reported, adding that “the Queen had her first vaccine in January 2021 and is believed to have had all her follow-up jabs after that.”

“The health of the 95-year-old Queen, who has been fully vaccinated against coronavirus, has been under the spotlight since she spent a night in hospital last October for an unspecified ailment and was advised by her doctors to rest,” Reuters reported.
