“CNN Newsroom” host Brooke Baldwin announced Friday that she tested positive for the coronavirus.

In a post on Instagram, Ms. Baldwin said she came down with the virus despite following social distancing guidelines by the government.

“I’ve tested positive for coronavirus. 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.

“I’m healthy…no underlying conditions,” she continued. “Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones. I look forward to being back on [TV] and seeing you real soon. And shout out to the doctors and nurses who are doing the real work right now.”

The news comes several days after fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo also tested positive for the virus. He continues to broadcast from his basement.
