LONDON, March 26: Britain on Thursday said Prince Charles, who has coronavirus, did not jump the queue for a test because his symptoms and condition met the criteria.
Charles tested positive for coronavirus earlier this week but is in good health and is now self-isolating in Scotland with mild symptoms, Clarence House said.
When asked why the heir to the British throne had a test while millions of frontline health workers have not, Britain’s junior health minister, Edward Argar, said: “My understanding is that his symptoms, his condition, met that criteria.”
“The Prince of Wales didn’t jump the queue,” Argar told Sky news.
