CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has been diagnosed with Covid-19, the network said 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 in a message 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!”
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.
