On April 3, CNN Newsroom anchor Brooke Baldwin announced she tested positive for coronavirus, becoming the second CNN anchor to have the virus.
Earlier, she posted an update to Instagram about last night, her worst night yet: “Last night turned out to be my worst so far — aches, chills, highest fever I’ve had. Tears. It wasn’t pretty.”
But when Baldwin woke up this morning, she was feeling better, she said. “[I woke up] feeling rested and at peace,” she wrote, before noting, “This will all be over soon enough.”
Thanking people for checking in on her, she wrote: “This past week I have heard from THOUSANDS of you. And in my lowest moments with this thing, what would keep me from completely spinning out, would be reading notes and texts and comments from you. Growing up in the South… the thing my mom would always be yammering to us kids: BE KIND. Turns out — it’s been YOUR kindness to me that has been 100% the most overwhelming part of this experience. And I just want to say from the bottom of my heart: thank you.”Follow @CommentaryCNN
