With covid-19, Belgian prince apologizes for going to event in Spain

Prince Joachim of Belgium apologized yesterday for attending a social agenda in Spain amid the pandemic of the new coronavirus. He was diagnosed positive for covid-19 after the event.

Joaquim, 28, traveled to Spain on May 24 and, two days later, visited the family of a Spanish friend in the city of Córdoba. At the venue, he attended a party with at least 12 people — the European press differs on the number and says that up to 27 people may have attended the event.

On the 28th, Joaquim received a positive diagnosis for the test for the new coronavirus. The prince is the son of Prince Lorenzo and Princess Astrid, and nephew of King Philip.

“I would like to apologize for not complying with all quarantine measures during my trip. In these difficult times, I did not intend to offend or disrespect anyone. I deeply regret my actions and accept the consequences,” Joaquim said in a statement released yesterday.

Spain has accounted for almost 240,000 cases of the new coronavirus since the pandemic began, but there have been no deaths between yesterday and today. The country currently allows meetings of a maximum of 10 people.

The Spanish press reports that authorities have been monitoring too many participants of the event to take relevant action. Joaquim remains in Spain, in quarantine.
