World News – GB – Kate Garraway says Derek Draper is currently stable but has ‘worrying setbacks’


Kate Garraway of Good Morning Britain provided an update on her husband Derek Draper who has been stable for a few days but suffers huge setbacks

Kate Garraway of Good Morning Britain gave a detailed update on the condition of her husband Derek Draper as he recovered from a horrific coronavirus battle that left him in a coma

Host Susanna Reid asked Kate how Derek was and how Kate was, and Kate revealed that weather presenter Laura Tobin had booked her for a massage as a thoughtful gift to help her relax

Kate said: « There are big highs and big lows, not really big highs, little upgrades and worrisome drops too

Susanna asked about hospital restrictions that make her the only person able to visit Derek regularly

« You fully understand why hospitals have to do this, they have to protect those who are recovering from Covid or who may have other serious illnesses

« But to do that they have to reduce the number of visitors, so Darcy couldn’t see Derek, his mom and dad haven’t seen him for a long time now

« The fact that they live in Lancashire and that can go into level two will have an effect as it will be very difficult for them to advocate for them to be able to visit

Susanna asked if Kate’s perspective on people breaking the lockdown rules had been altered based on her own experience with the virus

« Probably, » Kate said « But I also handle what everyone else is handling with restrictions

I would absolutely not condemn anyone, because it is very difficult to manage your finances, to worry about the mental health of your children

I’ve been in a very strange place, and what they could probably do is have a little fun halfway through, outside the house

« I understand that if you don’t have someone in the family who is as seriously ill as Derek, it’s probably a more pressing need on your mind

« But I keep coming back to the fact that when I see Derek, I just think no one in the country would want that for someone they love for themselves

« This has to be the case for people like Dr Hilary, who are so good at playing by the rules because they want to prevent people from getting into this state, » she added

Susanna told Kate that she and the team sent their love to Derek, and Kate thanked everyone for their support

She added that she knew how lucky she was to have the support she has, including friends who book her massages
