The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth, has urged the citizens of the United Kingdom and the world generally to embrace unity as Covid-19 pandemic has practically taken the peace of the world.
Speaking on Corona Virus, she said the UK “will succeed” in its fight against the virus but may have” more still to endure”.
“I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it. Practice “self-discipline and resolve”, in the face of the coronavirus pandemic”, she urged.
To recall that COVID-19, known as Corona Virus, has occurred globally in more than 25 countries as 1,249,107 cases detected, 67,999 feared dead, some isolated, few recovered.
In the United States, 324,052 cases have been discovered, when 9,180 are dead.
Alone in Nigeria, 232 cases discovered, 33 recovered and 5 dead.
With the help of lockdown, precautions and medicals, COVID-19 in the tickle of an eye will eradicate, much hope.
Elizabeth II (Elizabeth Alexandra Mary; born 21 April 1926) is Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms.
Elizabeth was born in London, the first child of the Duke and Duchess of York, later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
Elizabeth has occasionally faced republican sentiments and press criticism of the royal family, in particular after the breakdown of her children’s marriages, her annus horribilis in 1992, and the death in 1997 of her former daughter-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.
However, in the United Kingdom, support for the monarchy has been and remains consistently high, as does her personal popularity.
