It was just announced that CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus.

CNN told the employees today and Cuomo also announced it on Twitter.

From CNN:

“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 he would be working from home, quarantined in his basement in New York. He actually did his show from his home on Monday, speaking with his brother, NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

He’s not the first person at the CNN offices in New York City who has come down with it. This is the third case they have had there. Many have been working from home and the offices have been repeatedly cleaned, according to CNN.

People on both sides of the aisle sent Cuomo their best wishes.
