Cable News Network (CNN) presenter, Richard Quest, has contracted COVID-19, a statement he released on Monday on his verified Twitter handle said.
The presenter said he has only a few symptoms of the disease, noting that he would reserve his prayers and thoughts for those who have harsher symptoms of the COVID-19 as he called on people to stay safe.
“I have caught coronavirus. I am blessed in that I have few symptoms – just a cough.
“I am saving my prayers and thoughts for those less fortunate. Stay in. And protect lives,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Brooke Baldwin had also tested positive for coronavirus.
Interestingly, they are all based in New York in the US which already has a death rate of 12, 654 from COVID-19.
