CORONAVIRUS | Britain on Thursday said Prince Charles, who has Covid-19, did not jump the queue for a test because his symptoms and condition met the criteria.
Charles tested positive for the virus 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.
