News recently got out about the state of Queen Elizabeth's health following the confirmation of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's positive COVID-19 status.

Rebecca English, for Daily Mail, has updates on the Queen's health in the wake of Boris Johnson's exposure to the Coronavirus. 

This was imminent due to her contact with the PM in the days leading to when he tested positive to the novel Coronavirus.

In a Twitter post, English made it known that the Queen was in a perfect state of health. She went on to divulge information about her last contact with Johnson. The Daily Mail personnel added in her tweet:

"The Queen last saw the PM on the 11th and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare…"

The tweet also read that further comments were withheld. The Prime Minister announced his test result via Twitter, after which he added that he had gone into self-Isolation while continuing to work from home.



It is, however, noteworthy that Queen Elizabeth conducted her weekly discussion with the Prime Minister at Buckingham palace through the phone, before leaving for her slated Easter holiday at Windsor Castle on the 19th of March. 

The UK Prime Minister further confirmed that he shook hands with the Coronavirus patients when he visited.

The early holiday was termed a "sensible precaution" due to the high rise in infected officials. However, her son and heir apparent to the throne, Prince Charles, was diagnosed with the viral infection and has since gone into isolation at his home, Birkhall.




Besides Boris, other government officials like the Secretary of State for health, Matt Hancock, also testified to feeling the symptoms of the Coronavirus. He has also effected the work-from-home measure.

England's chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, advised Johnson to take the test due to his symptoms. However, Boris wasn't the only one who needed to get tested, as Whitty is currently down with the virus as well.



In weeks leading up to Boris's exposure to the Coronavirus, he was seen continuously shaking people's hands and defying the no-handshake precaution.  

The UK Prime Minister further confirmed that he shook hands with the Coronavirus patients when he visited.

After contracting the virus, Johnson made it known that he was experiencing persistent cough and increased temperature.

The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles, was among the dignitaries that attended the Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey. The Queen and the royals from Sussex and Cambridge were also in attendance. 

A few days after the event, Prince Charles tested positive. It was also shared that one attendee, possibly part of the 54 flag bearers, was infected.
