CNN Anchor Brooke Baldwin Tests Positive for Coronavirus


NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin said Friday that she has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Baldwin, 40, announced her diagnosis in an Instagram post.

"I am OKAY," she wrote. "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," she wrote. "I'm healthy... no underlying conditions... Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones."

She said she looks forward to getting back on TV and thanked the doctors and nurses "who are doing the real work right now."

Earlier in the week, fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo revealed his positive diagnosis for COVID-19.

The 49-year-old went on to describe some of the symptoms he has been experiencing.

“This virus came at me, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Cuomo said, adding that his fever spiked to 103 degrees.

“It was like somebody was beating me like a piñata,” he said. “I was shivering so much…I chipped my tooth.”
