Kate, who recently revealed Derek has lost eight stone while battling the deadly disease, was even sent a note from Boris himself.
The 53-year-old Good Morning Britain presenter said she received tons of support while her husband Derek Draper has been battling Covid-19 for six months in hospital.
Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway says Prime Minister Boris Johnson sent her a ‘lovely’ handwritten note while her husband Derek Draper battled coronavirus in intensive care
Luckily for the PM, he was discharged seven days later but sadly for Derek, that hasn’t been the case as he remains in hospital.
Kate Garraway has revealed Prime Minister Boris Johnson sent her a “lovely” handwritten note during husband’s coronavirus battle.
The mother-of-two said the note was from Boris and his fiancée Carrie Symonds – who he recently had a baby with in the middle of the pandemic, after battling coronavirus himself and ending up in intensive care.
She added: “Boris’s public face gets a lot of stick but the challenge is that politicians are all in the dark just like us.”
“So I have seen a very human side to them.”
Speaking to You Magazine, Kate said: “Boris hand-wrote me a really lovely note saying he was thinking about me and Carrie has sent us messages via other people saying she knows it’s very tough.
Boris was taken to hospital back in April with the virus and was discharged a week later.
“There’s always this sadness. That and the heartbreak are the most wearing things.”
She explained: “Every issue I’m dealing with I automatically think, ‘Oh, I’ll check with Derek’ and then realise I can’t.
Kate went on to tell the publication how she feels about her new routine of it just being her and their two kids, Darcey and Billy, at home while Derek remains in hospital.
The star added: “I see him quite infrequently, not as often as I’d wish.”
Derek, 53, was rushed into hospital on March 29 with coronavirus and was soon placed into a medically-induced coma.
He is now Covid-free and out of the coma but is still fighting a health battle after coronavirus damaged his internal organs.
