Queen Elizabeth tests positive for Covid-19

Queen Elizabeth the second

The BBC has reported that the Queen has tested positive for Covid-19 according to Buckingham Palace.

The monarch is experiencing “mild cold-like symptoms” but expects to continue “light duties” at Windsor over the coming week, the BBC reports the palace as saying.

“She will continue to receive medical attention and will follow all the appropriate guidelines,” it added in a statement.

The Queen, 95, had been in contact with her eldest son and heir, the Prince of Wales, who tested positive last week.

It is understood that a number of people have tested positive at Windsor Castle, where the Queen resides.

Following the announcement, the Palace issued a congratulatory message from the Queen to the Team GB Curling teams.

    Medication not curing & more getting sicker & sicker. Who benefits? Those who are already rich making trillions. How did Dominica the nature island get into this? We have a wealth of natural remedies. One who does not know history cannot be wise. We have always had merciless men trying or destroying human beings. The foolish thing of God is better than the wisdom of man. What has changed? The heart of man is deceitful. Some persons have ulterior notions, all they want is to make money out of us. Instill us with “we know not what in this and that” to tell us to buy into anything that the merciless man puts forward to make money out of us, even playing philanthropic. We move like sheep without a master when we should seek our Creator’s face for guidance. Did we create the world? We cannot do anything without the Great One. He gave man wisdom but it is null & void when we rely on our strength, use it to destroy & maim humans. Take note. Leaders do the right thing. Admit u were…

    Is carbon dioxide the main air to breathe? Oxygen has been discarded too by corona? Let us be wise. Let people know the danger of breathing in the same air that is expelled out. I do not advise not wearing masks when in groups, I have seen some persons faint for lack of air because U have failed to educate them. Some wear the mask 24 hours because they are afraid. Many have died because of fear. Speak to the populace about the dangers of masks, especially the fiber ones where one can actually breathe the fiber which will compromise the lungs. We are creating incubators for sicknesses, not preventing. The many respiratory diseases that will emerge because of the constant mask-wearing even when persons are alone. Give out the correct facts. Yes, wear a mask when around others but not 24 -7. The blood needs oxygen. Why suppress oxygen needed by the body? There is nothing new under the sun. coronavirus has always been. Who benefits? Rich getting richer. Prevention is…

    Everyone will test positive at some point. This is flu season & testing positive does not mean that you are ill. Look back & aren’t there seasons when the flu is rampant after activities such as carnival or Creole music festival? We named flu after any world event or personality. Do you remember? The young ones may not know this, but u grown-ups aren’t these normal like days of before? Fever, runny nose, bitter taste in the mouth, nose blocked, and not being able to smell? A virus hits at everyone. Some fight it out. What is the difference now? Testing yes testing! The coronavirus is 99.9% curable. Stop fear madness. No one speaks of immune systems. Corona killed all diseases, sicknesses, took over, even kill immunity? Any death even the person has cancer is corona? Wake up people, leaders esp stop deception. Coronavirus has always been. Can dead breath out virus? Cough, sneeze yes! Environmental health allow loved ones to get closure. Glass over face. Fear has killed a lot…

    Oh well, it’s called Wait your turn so the queen is not exempted. Covid touches and leaves. Drink allu bush tea eh and rub like our granny used to. No jab Gan help. I will send some dominican bush for you all. They send me home isolation with no prescription although I had flu symptoms. But guess what, I was recovered with my bush.

    Aye DNO, can your investigative journalists conduct some on-the-ground research in Dominica to find out whether there has been an upsurge in the number of vaccinated persons in Dominica who have caught covid in recent months. Tenks.

    Disclaimer – I am only using the word vaccinated BECAUSE that is the categorization used to label persons who received the pharmaceutical injections made by Pfizer, Astrazeneca & Co re:covid. I hope this mockery of Immunology by ‘the experts’ will cease when the farce is exposed.

    I wish Queen Elizabeth a speedy recovery as anyone else who has contracted COVID 19.

    My main takeaway from this article is simply this. The Queen is triple vaccinated. Despite this, she has contracted the virus. Those of you who sell the idea that only the unvaccinated can spread the virus, here, once again, your assertion going up in flames.

      Ibo, my advice to you if you don’t understand something it’s best not to talk about it, for a start doctors and scientist never said that the COVID jab was 100%safe the Queen at 95 years old has taken three jabs this is why her COVID symptoms was very mild otherwise if she had not it might have kill her.Be free to your opinion and your usual mouth rolling!!!!
