CNN’s Chris Cuomo Diagnosed With Coronavirus
( Mediaite )
CNN has announced that Chris Cuomo, the network’s prime time anchor and brother of New York governor Andrew Cuomo, has tested positive for the coronavirus. Cuomo has released a statement on his diagnosis.
CNN sent employees a memo on Tuesday confirming Cuomo’s announcement that he will continue to anchor his show from home. Cuomo’s diagnosis makes him the 3rd person with CNN’s New York City offices to have the virus, and the announcement comes after after the CNN host interviewed his brother about the state’s ongoing effort to tackle the pandemic.
“Like other media companies, CNN has implemented sweeping changes in response to the pandemic,” Brian Stelter wrote on the situation. “The vast majority of CNN employees have been working from home for several weeks. Anchors have been broadcasting from small studios and home offices. And office spaces are being regularly cleaned.”
