CNN’s Brooke Baldwin Receives Outpouring of Support from Colleagues After Being Diagnosed With Coronavirus
CNN’s Brooke Baldwin announced today she has tested positive for coronavirus.
“I am OKAY,” Baldwin posted on Instagram. “It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon. Chills, aches, fever… shout out to the doctors and nurses who are doing the real work right now.”
Baldwin’s announcement comes days after colleague Chris Cuomo said he tested positive as well.
This week Baldwin conducted a powerfully emotional interview with Michelle Bennett, who lost her mother to the coronavirus.
Baldwin received tons of well-wishes from colleagues at CNN and the rest of the media:

.@BrookeBCNN was one of the nicest & friendliest anchors when I worked as a tour guide @CNN, always taking time to smile & wave at guests. And she never made any of us tour guides feel “less than.” Wishing you a speedy recovery, Brooke! 🙏🏻 https://t.co/sO0lmWOkR8

Sorry to hear Brooke Baldwin (@BrookeBCNN) has the virus. She announced it on Instagram, says she followed all the guidelines. Seems to be taking some time off. Feel better
