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!”
