Kate’s husband Derek was first admitted to hospital in March after contracting coronavirus and was later put into a induced coma.
Last week, she said of his progress: “About him and the coma for starters, it’s a strange word coma, he was induced into the coma because it was a way of resting the lungs when he had very acute Covid, of course now they’re no longer keeping him in the coma, he sort of can’t wake up.
“There’s two types of coma – there’s the one we think of as vegetative coma, where someone’s completely unconscious, you know, you could stab them and they wouldn’t react – and there’s where Derek is which is a minimum state of consciousness.
“So, wonderfully his eyes are opening but we have no real knowledge of what he can see or hear and feel.”
