As the more cases of COVID-19 are coming about, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has become of the latest person to test positive for the virus.
The news about his diagnosis was announced on Tuesday. However, Chris is feeling well and will still host his show “Cuomo Prime Time,” from his home.
Chris said in a statement posted to Twitter, “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. I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills, and shortness of breath. I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness.”
