Mr. Draper is treated in hospital while the Good Morning Britain host isolates himself at home after showing symptoms for Covid-19.
A Garraway spokesperson, 52, said, “Kate’s husband Derek Draper has been taken to hospital and is being treated in intensive care with a confirmed case of Covid-19.
“Kate has not been tested, but she also has mild symptoms, also since Monday, and has therefore been in strict isolation with her children at home. “
She appeared to allude to her husband’s diagnosis in an Instagram post Thursday evening when she discussed the nationwide wave of applause for NHS workers.
“Thank you to all the health workers who take care of our loved ones and to the key workers who continue our lives. You are incredible. “
His colleague from Good Morning Britain, Piers Morgan, said on Twitter: “Now that it has been made public, I can say that this horrible situation has put coronavirus in our hearts at GMB.
“My love and prayers to Kate and Derek. “
