After weeks of consistently reporting on the coronavirus pandemic, CNN’s Chris Cuomo has announced that he has tested positive for COVID-19.


On Twitter, Cuomo reported, “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."

The 49-year-old CNN host (who is the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the son of the late New York Gov. Mario Cuomo) went on to describe his symptoms, tweeting, “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive, and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath. I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!”

Cuomo is married to fellow journalist Cristina Greeven.

In a memo to his co-workers, Chris Cuomo said he will be working from home and will be in self-quarantine.
