New Delhi: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth who last saw coronavirus-infected UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on March 11 remains in good health, said a statement from Buckingham Palace on Friday.
PM Johnson on Friday posted on Twitter confirming that he had tested positive for the novel virus. He is currently working in isolation. He is the first European leader to have contracted COVID-19.
“The queen last saw the PM on the 11th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regards to her welfare,” a palace spokesman said.
The Queen (93) and her husband, Prince Philip (98) are currently at Windsor Castle, their home to the west of London with a small staff.
On Wednesday, the monarch was pictured speaking on the telephone as she held her regular weekly audience with Johnson remotely.
Earlier this week, the monarch’s son and next in line to the throne, Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus. He has mild symptoms and is in good health at his home in Scotland, his office said.
