Chris Cuomo is the latest well-known personality to test positive for coronavirus.
The CNN host headed to his Twitter page to share the sad news, giving fans specifics about how he has been feeling and how he might have caught it.
“Sooooo 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,” he said in a statement. “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath.”

Nevertheless, Cuomo says that he plans to continue airing his CNN show Cuomo Prime Time as he stays quarantined in his basement in an effort to keep his other family members healthy.
“I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina,” Cuomo continued of his children and wife. “That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
The news comes at the same time as his brother, New York state Gov. Andrew Cuomo, continues to inform not only the residents of his state, but the nation, about this cruel pandemic.
“Everyone is subject to this virus,” the governor said during his press conference on Monday (March 30), according to People magazine. “It is the great equalizer. I don’t care how smart, how rich, how powerful you think you are. I don’t care how young, how old. My brother Chris is positive for coronavirus, we found out this morning. Now, he’s going to be fine. He’s young, in good shape, strong — not as strong as he thinks — but he will be fine.”
