CNN journalist Cuomo, brother of the New York governor, has coronavirus

NEW YORK: CNN anchor Chris Cuomo whose Andrew is the high-profile of NY Estado said Tuesday it has contracted, and will continue to broadcast from self-isolation at its home.

In these tough times that seem to be getting more and more difficult and complicated every day, I found out that I am positive for the coronavirus, Cuomo said.

I have been exposed to people in the past few days who subsequently tested positive and had a fever, chills and shortness of breath, he added.

I just hope I don't give it to the kids and Cristina . That would make me feel worse than the disease!

Cuomo, 49, hosts his own news show for the week on CNN, Cuomo Prime Time. He said he would continue to work from his basement, where he is quarantined away from his family.

I will do my shows from here. We will all get through this by being smart, tough and united!

The NY governor, who has ribbed his younger brother during interviews, mentioned the family situation during his daily press briefing, calling the CNN reporter his "best friend."

But he couldn't resist a bit of kind jokes, saying: He's young, he's in good shape, strong, not as strong as he thinks, but he'll be fine.
