Hmmmm.Given the source, I'm sincerely hoping this is a classic example of 'fake news' disinformation.
'News of the Queen testing positive for COVID-19 does not come as a surprise since there was a possibility that she could have been exposed by the virus during one of her weekly meetings with Prime Minister Boris Johnson who tested positive an hour ago, according to UCR.
'Royal Palace confirms Queen Elizabeth tests positive for coronavirus. Buckingham Palace revealed the monarch held a face-to-face with Mr. Johnson on March 11. Her health, the palace added, remains good and stable though she has shown mild symptoms of the novel coronavirus.
'In a brief statement, the palace said, “HMQ has also tested positive and is currently self-isolating at Windsor Castle. The Queen came into contact with the PM on the 11th March and is following all the appropriate advice with regards to her welfare”.
'The Queen, who left Buckingham Palace on March 19, looks set to spend the next few weeks of self-isolation at Windsor Castle with Prince Philip as she recovers from the virus.'
TEHRAN, Mar. 28 (MNA) – While many UK media outlets have kept silent, a report by UCR says, "Queen Elizabeth II has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Buckingham Palace confirmed in a release a few minutes after Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed he tested positive for coronavirus."en.mehrnews.com

Surely that would confuse the uneducated including the media as the exponential curve is replaced by a straight line? That would potentially weaken the social distancing message.It would probably be best for them to use a log scale.

A picture paints a thousand words - but only if it is understood. How many people look at the axes and scales and not just the straight line?
