Collins' wife Grace Maxwell has again updated fans on the singer's progress via his official website. She wrote that the virus had been very difficult to get under control, but commented: "I'm hopeful that we've turned a corner. Edwyn continues to feel quite well in himself."
A statement has been released by the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, where Collins is receiving treatment:
"Grace and the family would like to restate their enduring gratitude to staff for the lifesaving care they have given to Edwyn... he continues to improve under the watchful eye of the medical team."
