CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has been diagnosed with Covid-19, the network said in a memo to employees today

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo has been diagnosed with Covid-19, the network said in a memo to employees today.

He is feeling well, and will continue to anchor his 9 pm program Cuomo Prime Time from his home.

"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 message on Twitter.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, brother of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, has tested positive for coronavirus but will do his prime-time show from his basement, where he has self-quarantined.

"I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath," he wrote.

"I just hope I didn't give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!"

Cuomo was most recently at CNN's offices in the Hudson Yards neighbourhood of New York City last Friday.

He anchored from his home on Monday (local time), and interviewed his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The two men traded brotherly barbs about the anchorman's basement live shot location.

Cuomo said today that he is "quarantined in my basement" and will "do my shows from here."

"We will all beat this by being smart and tough and united!" he wrote on Twitter.

This is the third case of coronavirus involving CNN's workspace in New York City. Employees were notified of another case in mid-March.

Like other media companies, CNN has implemented sweeping changes in response to the pandemic.

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.
