LONDON (AP) – Queen Elizabeth II, following her own recent battle with COVID-19, empathized with patients, doctors and nurses at a London hospital last week as she listened to their stories of life on the front lines of the pandemic. The monarch spoke to patients and staff at the Royal London Hospital during a virtual visit marking the official inauguration of the Queen Elizabeth Unit, a 155-bed intensive care unit built in just five weeks at the height of the pandemic. Elizabeth tested positive for COVID-19 in February and suffered what Buckingham Palace described as “mild cold-like symptoms.”
