“Katie’s seriously worried about him because his heath complications would mean that catching coronavirus would be very serious. Doctors are waiting for the results and should have them by Tuesday.”

Harvey has the rare genetic condition Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause weight gain and behavioural problems, and is also partially blind and on the autistic spectrum.

He was rushed to Epsom Hospital in Surrey on Sunday night after his temperature spiked to 42C.

The teen will be in hospital “for at least a week” as doctors monitor his condition round the clock.

Harvey, 18, is now in a stable condition but remains critically ill in intensive care.

The Sun Online can reveal he was visited by mum Katie yesterday.

“Katie had to change clothes and get in scrubs and full PPE to visit him,” says the insider.

“She remains extremely worried about him but she’s trying to stay strong.”

On Twitter, Katie told followers: “Thanks so much for all your messages of love and support for Harvey. It’s really keeping me going.”
