CNN primetime anchor Chris Cuomo has been diagnosed with the coronavirus, Brian Stelter reports. Although Cuomo anchored Cuomo Prime Time from his home on Monday, he was last at the network’s Hudson Yards office as recently as Friday.
The news was announced in an internal memo on Tuesday morning.
Cuomo is feeling well and is expected to continue anchoring Cuomo Prime Time from his home.
In a statement posted on Twitter, he said, “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills, and shortness of breath.” He went on to say, “I am quarantined in my basement . . . I will do my shows from here.”
