Queen Elizabeth Tests Positive For COVID-19
Buckingham Palace confirmed the development in a statement on Sunday, saying that the 95-year-old Queen is experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms” but will continue “light duties” at Windsor over the coming week.
“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” the palace said.
The Queen had been in contact with her eldest son and heir, the Prince of Wales, who tested positive last week.
Charles, who has received jabbed thrice, contracted the virus for the second time after testing positive for the disease in March 2020.
After the contact, the palace had said the Queen would be ‘closely monitored’ by doctors.
