The former batsman’s sickness has not been given a prognosis because his family has requested seclusion.
Graham Thorpe has lately become unwell and is receiving treatment in hospital.
“We ask for privacy for him and his family at this time because his prognosis is unclear. Graham and his family have been on our minds.”
Following his departure from the England set-up after the Ashes this winter, Thorpe, 52, accepted the job of Afghanistan head coach.
Due to Silverwood’s coronavirus diagnosis, he stepped up to captain the squad in the Sydney Test against Australia this winter.
After a lengthy and illustrious career as a player, Thorpe first joined the England set-up as a batting coach in 2010.
Thorpe played 100 Tests between 1993 and 2005, averaging 43 and scoring 6,744 runs.
He hit 16 hundred, including an unbroken 200 against New Zealand in a Test match.
However, he retired from international cricket after being replaced by Kevin Pieterson for the 2005 Ashes, a move that selector David Graveney called “the most difficult decision that I have been a part of in my time as a selector.”
Thorpe also played in the 1996 and 1999 World Cups and scored 2,380 runs in 82 ODI games.
He also played 341 times for Surrey in first-class cricket, scoring 21,937 runs in the process.
