As this time, his health condition was not at all worrying and the father of Jacques and Gabrielle had been “closely followed by his doctor and specialists of the Princess Grace Hospital Center”. He had also respected the recommendations put in place by the government and had continued to “work from the office of his private apartments”, while being in “permanent liaison with the members of his cabinet, his government as well as with his closest collaborators”. Following this announcement, Albert of Monaco addressed the Monegasque people and asked them to “respect the containment measures and limit contact with others to a minimum”. Optimistic, Albert II had explained to Monaco-Matin that one should not “give in to panic, nor to psychosis” but remain “vigilant and attentive”. Advice that he will certainly follow to the letter.
