- Prince Charles of Wales is the latest to test positive to the wide-spreading coronavirus
- Charles, who is 71, is said to be having mild symptoms and is working from home in isolation
- The heir to the throne had various engagements recently, so it is difficult knowing how he got the virus
Charles, Prince of Wales, 71, and heir apparent to the British royal throne, has tested positive to coronavirus with reports saying he had many engagements recently.
Metro reports that the prince developed mild symptoms while the British Broadcasting Service said he was tested on Monday, March 23, and that the result came out late Tuesday, March 24.
The BBC also confirms that he met with the queen since March 12, and is currently working from home where he is isolated.
It is not yet clear from where he caught the virus and reports are saying it is impossible to know the source because of the engagements he had in weeks before now.
Prince Charles has been the Duke of Cornwall and that of Rothesay since 1952.
He is also reportedly the oldest and longest-serving heir apparent in British history.
The confirmation of the current health status of the prince was made known in a statement reportedly released on Wednesday, March 25.
The statement said the prince had showed certain symptoms that are currently mild.
His wife, the statement said, does not have the virus as she has undergone tests. She is, however, in isolation in Scotland.
"The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing," the statement said.
Legit.ng had reported that despite fears that it could be the animal behind coronavirus, the sale of pangolin has continued, probably unabated in Nigeria.
This development was put together by Uwagbale Edward-Ekpu and reported by Quartz, a business medium.
The virus began in Wuhan, China and has spread to other parts of the world including Nigeria where the cases have scaled up and continue to rise.
Meanwhile, Pastor William Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Church has released some prayers and words of encouragement as Nigeria grapples with coronavirus.
Kumuyi posted his prayer on social media on Tuesday, March 24, days after he joined other notable preachers and clergymen in Nigeria to ask church members to stay away from Sunday service at the worship centre.
