Queen Elizabeth II is being “closely monitored” by her staff after she was diagnosed with the “Corona” virus.
And according to a report published by the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, Buckingham Palace is taking “caution” after the Queen feels “minor symptoms”, as she plans to continue “light tasks” this week.
The Queen, 95, still wants to communicate with citizens via the Internet and telephone meetings, with the possibility of canceling only one in-person event.
Palace staff will keep a close eye on the Queen; Because she is “too thin and weak” compared to last year, and last week she said, “I can’t move” as she leaned on a walking stick.
“The mood in the palace suggests caution, but there is no panic,” BBC correspondent Daniela Ralph told “Today”.
She added, “There are two main factors; First: The Queen is 95 years old; She is about 96 years old, and this puts her in the category of people most at risk of complications. Secondly, it is much thinner and weaker than it was a year ago, and of course it will now have to be carefully monitored.”
She indicated that it was possible for the Queen to receive some kind of antiviral treatment, but “Buckingham Palace” would not confirm this.
Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen suffers from symptoms similar to those of a mild cold.”
Fears will increase for the Queen given her age, but she is determined to do the tasks that she can do despite the virus.
“The Queen has put pressure on staff who have been forced to isolate and stay away from their families for a long time,” royal expert Roya Nikah told the Today programme. She added: “The Queen has accepted that she might be in danger at some point, but I think she will be fine. She was vaccinated 3 times.
