NEW YORK (AP) — Barbara Walters has the chicken pox.

The television veteran has been hospitalized for more than a week after taking a fall. Doctors wouldn’t release her because she was running a temperature, and now they know why: The 83-year-old news veteran has a disease many people deal with when they are children.

Whoopi Goldberg delivered the news Monday on “The View,” the daytime talk show Walters started. Goldberg delivered an ultimatum to Walters: “No scratching.”

Walters has been transferred to a New York hospital after being in Washington. She fell on Jan. 19 and hit her head, and was hospitalized for observation.
