Iconic talk-show host Larry King has been moved out of the intensive care unit amid his battle with COVID-19, but he’s not out of the woods yet.
King remains hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he checked in more than a week ago.
“Larry continues to improve,” King’s family said in a statement. “He and his sons thank everyone for the outpouring of support and can’t wait to get him home.”
“They also thank the medical workers and staff at Cedars-Sinai and hospitals elsewhere who are providing care to so many people under extraordinary circumstance,” the statement added.
The 87-year-old Brooklyn native was able to have a video call with his sons, Larry Jr., Cannon and Chance, a spokesman said.
King, best known for his “Larry King Live” interview show that ran on CNN from 1985 to 2010, has faced a number of medical scares in the last few decades, including prostate and lung cancer, a heart attack in 1987 and a near-fatal stroke in 2019.
