Veteran American broadcaster, Larry King, has been moved out of the ICU at a California hospital where he is undergoing treatment for COVID-19.
King, 87, has been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for more than 10 days – and was moved from the ICU unit on Sunday, a source close to the family revealed.
The former CNN talk show host believes he contracted the potentially deadly bug from a health care worker who went to his home, the source said, according to the news outlet, Pagesix.com reports.
Also, one of King’s sons was infected with the virus, said the source.
News of King’s bout with the coronavirus came to light over the weekend.
Hospital safety protocols have prevented King’s family members from visiting him at the hospital.
King has faced a host of medical issues in the past, including a heart attack, a stroke, prostate and lung cancer and diabetes.
Last year, the veteran broadcast journalist lost two of his five children just weeks apart – his son, Andy, 65, died of a heart attack and his daughter Chaia, 51, died from lung cancer.
