He said on today's show: "We haven't talked about it much because Kate Garraway is going through a living hell like many people.
"Her husband has been in a very serious condition for many many weeks.
"We can all just hope and pray he comes through it, but it's been very, very difficult for Kate and her family.
"We miss her here at the show, but obviously we stay in touch with her a lot.
"We send her and the kids all our love and we just wish Derek all the very best."
Susanna Reid added: "We haven't said much, we leave it up to Kate, because she updates fans on Thursdays after the Clap for Carers and then Ben Shephard updates viewers the next day."
Piers has spoken about he has been personally affected by the deadly bug after his cousin's dad died of coronavirus. His TV producer friend's mum also recently died in a care home.
