Prince Charles tests positive for the coronavirus, but if there is “anyone who can get good treatment” it’s the Prince and therefore he is unlikely to “drop off the perch because of coronavirus” says Sky News contributor Caleb Bond.
The West Australian is reporting the heir to the British Throne reportedly contracted the virus after he was the “star guest at a fundraiser for an Australian bushfire relief dinner in London”
Questions now turn to whether the prince infected his mother, Queen Elizabeth II who is now in self-isolation at Windsor Castle.
Mr Bond told Sky News host Peter Gleeson people like Prince Charles, Tom Hanks, and Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton – who have all contracted the virus – are “by necessity going to be far more likely to contract coronavirus” because their job requires them to constantly meet people.
“They can become super spreaders,” he said.
