In the meantime, Prince Charles his reported to have last seen his mother, the Queen, roughly two weeks ago on March 12. The Queen, however, is reported to be in ‘good health’.

    The UK is not handling this situation well at all. Our local government must be applauded for how well they are handling it.

    Hope that Prince Charles, heir to the throne, recover quickly from the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) disease. The lesson from the Prince’s ailment, if there is one, is that the virus does not discriminate by age, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual preference, national original, rich, poor, capitalists and socialists…….etc. We must all go all out to prevent, contain, control and mitigate the virus.
