CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has been diagnosed with the COVID-19 coronavirus, according to the cable news network, which shared the news Tuesday in a memo to employees.

“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.

“I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath,” he wrote. “I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo spoke with great feeling about his brother upon hearing the younger Cuomo was diagnosed with COVID-19.

The CNN anchor had interviewed his older brother, New York’s governor, on Monday from his home. The two of them spent most of the program ribbing each other. The network said he is feeling well and will continue to anchor his 9 pm program from his home.
