Marianne Faithfull hospitalized with COVID-19
Marianne Faithfull is currently in a London hospital being treated for COVID-19. Billboard confirmed the news with her manager, François Ravard, who says the 73-year-old artist is "stable and responding to treatment." There were more details from Faithfull's longtime friend, Penny Arcade:
Marianne Faithfull is in hospital in London having tested positive for Covid 19. She went in this past tuesday.
Please pray for her !
She has withstood and survived so much in her life - including being Marianne Faithful, that to be taken down by a virus would be such a tragedy. I spoke to her last week and she was hiding out from the virus but she has caregivers and someone brought in to her.
I wrote to her much loved ex husband John Dunbar....He said "So far so good.But also that she can barely speak and no visitors."
We're pulling for you, Marianne.
Marianne's most recent album was 2018's Negative Capability.
