CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo was the third New York CNN employee to test positive for coronavirus.

New York, NY – CNN anchor and little brother of the New York governor Chris Cuomo announced Tuesday that he had been diagnosed with coronavirus.

"Soooooo 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 tweeted on March 31.

"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!"

“I am quarantined in my basement (which actually makes the rest of the family seem pleased!) I will do my shows from here. We will all beat this by being smart and tough and united!” Cuomo posted.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo addressed his younger brother’s health during his daily press briefing, CNN reported.

"This virus is the great equalizer," the governor said. "My brother, Chris, is positive for coronavirus. Found out this morning."

He called his brother his best friend.

"He's young; in good shape; strong -— not as strong as he thinks, but — he'll be fine,” the governor added.

"Now he's quarantined in the basement," he explained. "But he's funny as hell, he says to me, 'Even the dogs won't come downstairs.'"

Chris Cuomo was the third CNN employee in the New York officer who has tested positive for coronavirus, CNN reported.

I am sure there will another “executive order”” from the Cuomo throne to grant special dispensation to his little brother!

The FDA okayed the use of the anti malaria drugs

I was thinking everyone at the communist news network would now have to be quarantined at home for at least 14 days and all we would see of that rat infested studio is the off the air circle of days past.

So his brother screams we need more test kits!, we need more test kits! There's not enough to go around! Thousands of Americans who suspect they were exposed or are infected are turned away because they are not showing severe enough symptoms. Here comes Chris (FREDO) Cuomo on national TV proclaiming he FEELS FINE but has tested positive for the Covid-19 virus and is self quarantining his self. How the hell did he get tested above others if he FEELS FINE? Such a sad disgrace. So lets see CNN is famous for fake news, wonder which it is FAKE news or elitist entitlement thumbing their nose at the average working American.

Fredo claims the virus made him hallucinate and chip a tooth. Gupta calls him a warrior.

Awww. He had a 101.5 fever. My wife had a 103.4 fever in February before she even took a Tylenol.

Don Lemon cries about Cuomo's diagnosis...
