The Telegraph newspaper had reported in 2020 that the Brooksbank family had been warned to “prepare for the worst” several times and that George spent nine weeks in the hospital, including five weeks on a ventilator after a trip to France the one where he was infected with Covid-19.
His condition finally improved after a tracheostomy, and George credited his recovery to staff at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London and the Royal Brompton Hospital.
“The point I really want to get across is that I think the NHS is absolutely magnificent. The way they treated me was incredible. Nothing was too much trouble and at no point did I have the feeling of a shortage of doctors or nurses or the impression that the service I was somewhat overwhelmed, ”George told The Telegraph at the time.
