CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin has tested positive for coronavirus, she announced today on Instagram. She anchored her show as recently as yesterday.
“I am OKAY. It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon. Chills, aches, fever. I’ve been social distancing. Doing ALL the things we’re being told to do. Still — it got me.”
Baldwin added, “I’m healthy… no underlying conditions… Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones. I look forward to being back on [TV] and seeing you real soon.”
Unlike fellow anchor Chris Cuomo, who is still anchoring despite coronavirus, Baldwin will be taking some time off.
