The year couldn’t start any worse for him …
Larry King has reportedly been hospitalized. Apparently the talk legend got infected with Corona.
According to the online portal “Showbiz411”, the 87-year-old presenter and CNN star is currently receiving medical care in a clinic in Los Angeles. Allegedly he contracted the virus over ten days ago.
Particularly worrying: Due to his old age, King belongs to the risk group of corona patients. In addition, the moderator has repeatedly struggled with health problems in the past months and years.
In 2019 he suffered a severe stroke that left him in a coma for weeks. In 2017 he developed lung cancer and in the 80s he had prostate cancer.
The report goes on to say that King’s family are not allowed to visit him in the hospital because he is isolated.
King’s Corona is the beginning of a year that, after a sad 2020, just doesn’t seem to get any better. The TV star lost two of his children in the summer. Daughter Chaia King and his son Andy King both died unexpectedly within just three weeks.
“Andy died unexpectedly of a heart attack on July 28, and Chaia died on August 20, just a short time after she was diagnosed with lung cancer,” King said in a statement following the death of his children. “Losing her feels so wrong. No parent should have to bury a child. “
