Jo Whiley has shared that her sister Frances, who has learning disabilities and diabetes, is out of hospital after being admitted with Covid-19 following an outbreak in her care home.
Last week, the BBC Radio 2 DJ, 55, spoke of the “nightmare” of being offered the vaccine before her 53-year-old sister, who has the rare Cri du Chat genetic syndrome. Frances later tested positive for coronavirus following an outbreak in her Northampton care home and was admitted to hospital.
