The famous British fundraiser Tom Moore was taken to the hospital after he was infected with Corona
British Captain Tom Moore, the 100-year-old, was infected with the new Corona virus, "Covid-19", after he collected, last year, millions of pounds to support the health care system in Britain by making walks inside his garden during the imposition of general isolation measures last year.
The daughter of the British fundraiser said that her father was taken to the hospital after testing positive for the emerging coronavirus.
The ancient warrior gained great attention last April, before his 100th birthday, after he toured, leaning on a frame, to help him walk around his garden in the village of Marston Murten in north London, according to Reuters.
She explained that his hope was to raise 1,000 pounds, but he raised more than 30 million pounds to support the Public Health Authority in the United Kingdom.
Moore also broke two Guinness records and was awarded a Knight by Queen Elizabeth, in which a song landed him first in sales, wrote his autobiography, and helped establish a charitable foundation.
"I would like to inform everyone today that ... my father has been taken to the hospital," his daughter said on Twitter.
"He was treated for the past few weeks of pneumonia, and last week he was diagnosed with corona ... He was with us at home until yesterday when he needed additional help in breathing ... He is being treated in a ward rather than in an intensive care unit," she added.
She indicated that her father is receiving "wonderful" medical care, expressing her hope that he will return home soon.
For his part, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said he is sympathetic to Moore and his family, adding, "I have inspired the entire nation, and I know we all wish you a full recovery."
Letters of support also poured in to the famous British fundraiser after he was hospitalized due to his infection with the Coronavirus.
