CNN’s Brooke Baldwin tests positive for coronavirus

Brooke Baldwin is the second anchor at CNN to test positive for coronavirus.

Baldwin, 40, revealed the news on Friday, writing on Instagram: “Hi friends — I’ve tested positive for coronavirus. I am OKAY. It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon. Chills, aches, fever.”

“I’ve been social distancing,” she continued. “Doing ALL the things we’re told to do. Still — it got me. I’m healthy… no underlying conditions…Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones.”

Baldwin added that she hopes to be back on television soon, but is listening to Bill Withers — who died on Friday — on repeat as well. She also gave a “shout out” to “the doctors and nurses who are doing the real work right now.”

Baldwin’s diagnosis comes just three days after Chris Cuomo revealed he tested positive for the virus.

Cuomo, 49, said on Thursday night that he lost 13 pounds in three days during his battle, explaining: “My wife is feeding me like, you know, we were still in the dating phase. So it’s not like I’m hurting for nutrition. I’m eating and drinking constantly. I’m just sweating it out, and it’s the sickness.”

Cuomo is still hosting his show despite his condition.

It is unclear when Baldwin will return to the small screen.
