The 84-year-old Oscar winning actor was recently hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19.
Sources close to the “Roots” star report Gossett had become so sick he could barely stand. The actor was admitted to a hospital in GA where he later checked out. Medical staff urged Gossett to stay due to him having underlying issues, including cancer, but him being placed in an area with other patients that were rapidly dying made him fear that his symptoms may worsen.
A tweet from Gossett’s account read: “He’s recovering at home now, but he’s not out of the woods by a long shot. His friends and family are asking for personal messages of healing and love.”
He is home isolated from his son but urges “Please wear masks, social distance, isolate, pray and listen within. We cannot survive without one another.”
