NEW YORK, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Barbara Walters, who fell and cut her head 10 days ago, now is suffering from chicken pox, it was announced on Monday's edition of "The View" in New York.

Walters, 83, was hospitalized in Washington last week after tripping on a stair at the British ambassador's residence. The injury prevented her from covering the presidential inauguration festivities as planned for ABC News.

"We want to give you an update on Barbara. You all know that she fell and cut her head 10 days ago, and then was running a temperature, but it turns out it is all the result of a delayed childhood. Barbara has the chicken pox. She'd never had it as a child. So, now she's been told to rest. She's not allowed any visitors. And we're telling you, Barbara, no scratching," moderator Whoopi Goldberg said on "The View" Monday.

Walters transferred to a New York hospital late last week and expects to be home soon, Goldberg said.

"We love you. We miss you. We just don't want to hug you," she added in a message to Walters.
