British centenarian Captain Tom Moore, who raised millions of pounds for the health service by walking laps of his garden, has been admitted to hospital after testing positive for COVID-19, his daughter said on Sunday.
“I wanted to update everybody that today … my father was admitted to hospital,” his daughter, Hannah, said on Twitter.
“Over the last few weeks he was being treated for pneumonia and last week tested positive for COVID-19. He was at home with us until today when he needed additional help with his breathing. He is being treated in a ward, although he is not in ICU (intensive care unit).”
