English singer/songwriter Marianne Faithfull has been hospitalised after testing positive for coronavirus. Representatives have confirmed the news with her manager, Francois Ravard that she is in a stable condition and responding to treatment. "We all wish her well and a full and speedy recovery," they told Rolling Stone.
"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." Longtime friend Penny Arcade wrote on Facebook detailing how Faithfull contracted the virus, "I spoke to her last week and she was hiding out from the virus but she has caregivers, and someone brought in to her."
