In a message released on Twitter, the British Queen said
“This year, Easter will be different for many of us, but by keeping apart we keep others safe. But Easter isn’t cancelled; indeed, we need Easter as much as ever,” she said.
“The discovery of the risen Christ on the first Easter Day gave his followers new hope and fresh purpose, and we can all take heart from this.
“We know that coronavirus will not overcome us. As dark as death can be — particularly for those suffering with grief — light and life are greater. May the living flame of the Easter hope be a steady guide as we face the future.”
Britain compared to other European State such as Italy, Spain Germany and France seem to be managing the situation as at today it has 78,991 infection cases 9,875 confirmed death and 344 recovered cases.
