Derek Draper Health Update: What Happened To Kate Garraway Husband? Is He In Hospital?
Derek Draper is one of Covid’s patients in the UK who has endured the most pain. He initially fell ill in March 2020 and was hospitalized for 13 months before being finally allowed to go home, where he is given round-the-clock care.
On Friday’s Lorraine, Kate Garraway was emotionally overcome as she described her husband Derek Draper’s health struggles.
He was admitted to the hospital over the summer after developing sepsis that required immediate transfer to critical care.
The 55-year-old broadcaster claimed that his care for her “has no end point” and added that her new normal might be “exhausting” for those around her.
Draper was admitted to an intensive care unit in March 2020 after being hospitalized with COVID-19.
After ten weeks, he was still in critical condition and was in an artificial coma in early June 2020.
He opened his eyes the next month but was still hospitalized and in critical condition. One year after catching the virus in March 2021, he was still treated in the hospital.
In May 2021, Draper’s wife updated her husband, claiming he is still immobile and saddened by COVID-19. Draper temporarily returned home in April 2021.
His wife said he was still getting round-the-clock care and sleeping 20 hours daily in September 2021.
In February and March 2022, he had treatment in Mexico; however, Draper’s wife has chosen to withhold specifics.
Draper was having trouble speaking, she confessed in April 2022: “He can understand, sometimes do funny words, but can’t articulate himself.” As of April 2022, Draper still needs around-the-clock care.
