CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has been diagnosed with COVID-19, the network said in a memo to employees on Tuesday.
“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 in a message on Twitter.
CNN reports that Cuomo was most recently at CNN’s offices in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of New York City last Friday. He anchored from his home on Monday, and interviewed his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“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!”
Cuomo said Tuesday that he is “quarantined in my basement” and will “do my shows from here.”
“We will all beat this by being smart and tough and united!” he wrote on Twitter.
This is the third case of coronavirus involving CNN’s workspace in New York City. Employees were notified of another case in mid-March.
Whose a conspiracy theorist living in the basement now?
