    He has, too.

    Eddie Large has died at the age of 78 from coronavirus, his son has confirmed.
    The comedian was best known for his double act Little and Large with Syd Little.

    His son Ryan McGinnis announced his passing on Facebook.
    "It is with great sadness that Mum and I need to announce that my dad, Edward Mcginnis, passed away in the early hours of this morning," he said.
    "He had been suffering with heart failure and unfortunately, whilst in hospital, contracted the coronavirus, which his heart was sadly not strong enough to fight.

    "Dad fought bravely for so long. Due to this horrible disease we had been unable to visit him at the hospital but all of the family and close friends spoke to him every day.

    Tom Dempsey: New Orleans great dies after contracting coronavirus


    New Orleans Saints great Tom Dempsey has died aged 73 after contracting coronavirus.
    Dempsey set the record for the longest NFL field goal with a 63-yard kick in 1970 - and it was only beaten in 2013.
    The placekicker, born without toes on his right foot and fingers on his right hand, played for five teams in an 11-season NFL career.
    Dempsey, who had battled Alzheimer's and dementia since 2012, was diagnosed with Covid-19 on 25 March.

    Good news:-

    Her family had already been sheltering at home and continued to do so, she said. They were tested again “just a few days ago,” and were negative.
