The novelty and widespread of the Coronavirus is what makes it a mystery to most people. While research is being done and measures are put in place, people still get infected with it.

Most recently, Duchess Camilla's ex-husband Andrew Parker Bowles tested positive for the coronavirus.

As reported by The Telegraph, Andrew had been at the horse racing event that took place from the 10th of March through to the 13th of March, which had over 250,000 people in attendance over the four days.

According to the report, the 80-year-old believes that it was at this event that he became infected with the virus. Speaking on this, Andrew said:

"I've felt pretty bloody awful with it. It's better in the mornings and gets worse as the day goes on. I've had a bad cough, and I've been very lethargic."

Andrew's revelation has raised concern for the health of the other royals he came in contact with, notably Princess Royal Anne and her daughter Zara who happens to be his goddaughter.

The trio was seen together in close proximity, where Andrew kissed Anne on the cheek, and Zara had her hands draped over his shoulder.

Prince Charles is now free from the virus.

During the event, Princess Anne, who happened to have dated Andrew back in the early days, was seen to be wiping her nose with a handkerchief battling what seemed to be a common cold.

When Andrew was asked if the event should have been moved ahead despite the warnings of the virals attacks, he responded saying:

"To be honest, it was optional whether we went. At the time, the Underground was running full of people. You can't blame Cheltenham. To be fair attendance was 10 percent down."

The news of Andrew's infection comes a few days after Duchess Camilla's current husband, Prince Charles, was declared stable, and over the viral infection, he had been battling with for a couple of days.

Since the outbreak of this virus, a couple of royal families from around the world have been infected with it, and while most of them made a full recovery, some died from complications off the infection.

In all these, the Queen has taken to Windsor Castle to self-isolate, and most royal duties are now being done remotely.
