According to US media reports, the legendary US talk show host Larry King is sick with Covid-19 and is in hospital. The longtime talk show host has been treated for more than a week at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, King’s former house broadcaster CNN reported, citing family circles.
King, 87, has diabetes and has had numerous health problems in the past, including multiple strokes and lung cancer.
