Former CNN International anchor Rick Folbaum has tested positive for the coronavirus, his employer CBS46 reports.
In the article, Folbaum said, “Wow, I am feeling so much better. This is Day 14 since I began feeling the symptoms and I would say the last couple of days have just been dramatic in terms of my improvement. Over the weekend I started to feel a little bit better and today, this is as good as I’ve felt since I got sick.”
Talking about when he was getting sick, he explained, “I literally put my head down and closed my eyes and fell fast asleep for a full half-hour until my producer had to wake me up to go anchor the six-o’clock news. So I ran out to the studio and during the 6pm news I realized something was going on and that I needed to go home as soon as possible which is exactly what I did.”
Folbaum left CNN in late 2019 to join CBS46.
