Primetime CNN Personality Catches Coronavirus, Will Stream Show from Home

Well this is sure to be awkward.

As the global COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread around the world, there are no shortage of famous folks who are going to come down with the potentially deadly illness.

As a matter of fact, just this week the country music world lost one of its most popular performers, 90’s icon Joe Diffie, who died of COVID-19 just days ago.  Another music legend, singer-songwriter John Prine also tested positive for the virus, with his condition improving from “critical” to “stable” between Sunday and Monday.

On Tuesday, one of CNN’s most popular primetime anchors revealed that he, too, has tested positive for coronavirus.

“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,” Cuomo wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath.”

The anchor said he will continue to host his 9 p.m. show, Cuomo Prime Time, from the basement of his home.

“I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina,” he added. “That would make me feel worse than this illness!”

Cuomo shared the primetime duties over at CNN with Don Lemon, both of whom are virulently opposed to the work of President Trump.
