CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has revealed he has been diagnosed with Covid-19. The announcement came Tuesday with Cuomo stating he is feeling well and will continue to anchor Cuomo Prime Time from home, CNN reports.
“In these difficult times that seem to get more difficult and complicated by the day, I just found out that I am positive for coronavirus,” Cuomo wrote on Twitter.
The anchor was at the Hudson Yards offices last Friday. He did his show from his home Monday from his basement.
“This virus is the great equalizer,” Governor Andrew Cuomo said. “My brother, Chris, is positive for coronavirus. Found out this morning.”
Gov. Cuomo detailed in his press briefing that his brother is keeping a sense of humor. “He’s funny as hell, he says to me, ‘Even the dogs won’t come downstairs.’,” Gov. Cuomo said.
Cuomo is the third CNN employee in New York City to test positive, however, the previous cases were in Mid-March.
