Prince Albert II, the head of Monaco State, was diagnosed with Covid-19, but may continue to work from his private apartments, “his state of health showing no concern,” the Palace announced Thursday.
“Prince Albert II of Monaco, who was tested earlier this week, is positive with Covid-19. His health is not worrying,” according to a statement from the Prince’s Palace, three days after Prime Minister Serge Telle, the equivalent of Minister of the Principality, announced that he was tested positive.
Albert II “is being monitored by his doctor and specialists at Princesse Grace Hospital (CHPG),” the Palace added.
The press release is accompanied by a new prince’s call on isolation measures to combat the spread of the virus.
The Monaco government has announced the closure, starting at midnight on Saturday, of “places that receive public, non-essential” to new orders, including casinos.
