King, who has Type 2 diabetes, has confronted a series of medical issues over the years, including several heart attacks and quintuple bypass surgery in 1987.
Legendary talk show host Larry King has tested positive for coronavirus and is being treated at a hospital here, according to U.S. media reports on Sunday.
Sources close to the 87-year-old former CNN interviewer said he has been at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre for over a week.
Representatives for King have not publicly commented on his hospitalisation, and details of his current condition are unclear.
“Larry has fought so many health issues in the last few years and he is fighting this one hard too, he’s a champ,” a source told CNN.
News of King’s hospitalisation came as emergency officials in California said hospitals were treating an unprecedented number of COVID-19 patients.
