Friedman: Larry King Battling COVID at LA Hospital. “But now I’m told that the 87 year old broadcasting star of CNN and radio is battling COVID in a famed Los Angeles hospital. His wife of 23 years, Shawn King — yes, they are apparently still legally married, and on very good terms — and their two sons, Chance and Cannon– are not allowed to visit him. But they are in constant contact with the hospital and doctors monitoring Larry’s condition.” [Showbiz 411]
King Is Considered A High Risk COVID Patient. “King’s age puts him at high risk for having severe complications due to the coronavirus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), eight in ten coronavirus deaths reported in the U.S. have been adults over 65 years old. Compared to those in the 18-29 year age group, those who are 85 years or older are 13 times more likely to be hospitalized due to COVID, and 630 times more likely to die from the virus.” [Heavy]
