Since the coronavirus was confirmed in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late December 2019, cases have been confirmed in over scores of countries across the globe.
With over thousands of people currently at home exercising social distancing, the government continues to roll out increasingly robust measures to halt the spread and to contain the pandemic which has claimed a number of lives.
Here are some latest developments as authorities implement measures to contain the spread of the virus.
Prince Charles tests positive to coronavirus “but otherwise remains in good health”
The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles has tested positive to the coronavirus but the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, tested negative.
Prince Charles and Camilla are now self-isolating at Balmoral, and “has been working at home throughout the last few days”.
According to BBC, an official statement read:
In accordance with government and medical advice, the prince and the duchess are now self-isolating at home in Scotland. The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire, where they met the criteria required for testing. It is not possible to ascertain from whom the prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks.
