CNN host Chris Cuomo has confirmed that he tested positive to Covid19.
He disclosed this via his twitter handle, adding that he hopes he has not given it to his wife Christina and the kids.
Cuomo has become a reliably entertaining interviewer since Covid19 coverage blanketed television news stations this month across America with the virus almost halting daily American life.
Most notably, Cuomo has gone viral for his charming interviews with his brother, New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo, throughout the pandemic.
According to the presenter, since testing positive he’s quarantined in his basement and will continue airing his CNN show, Cuomo Prime Time, from there.
“Sooooo 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,” he said in a statement posted to Twitter. “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath.”
“I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina,” Cuomo continued of his children and wife. “That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
