Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, aged 71 has joined the list of Coronavirus infected patients. The virus has killed 19,000 and more people globally. Roughly 450,000 individuals have tested positive for the respiratory disease, COVID-19. Coronavirus has spread throughout every continent except Antarctica. The disease has now grasped the continent of Europe and North America after making landfall in China.
The United States has reported more than 50,000 individuals infected with the virus. Almost the entirety of the world’s population has been suggested to stay at home. The death toll in the United States surpasses 800 today. The Netherlands also sees a spike in death rate by almost 30%. The mortality rate of the virus is increasing day by day.
Prince Charles and so many other celebrities and high government officials are testing positive for the coronavirus, even without any serious symptoms, because either this virus is targeting the rich and famous while sparing the poor and the homeless or they have access to tests.

The Prince of Wales, first in line to the British throne, has tested positive of the novel coronavirus. He displayed mild symptoms and was otherwise in good health. Alternatively, his wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, tested negative for COVID-19. The couple is living at their private residence in Birkhall, Scotland.
At the moment it seems impossible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus. The Buckingham Palace said, “Her Majesty, The Queen remains in good health.”
Meanwhile, in the United States, a coalition of around 16 attorney generals asked President Donald Trump to fully use the Defense Production Act (DPA). It will prioritize the production of masks, respirators, and other clinical items which is to help the health care workers, first responders and law enforcement officers all across the country amid the coronavirus crisis.
The virus seems to be growing day by day. It all comes down to the important decisions taken by every country to stop its spread.
