Yahoo reports CNN’s Brooke Baldwin has tested positive for COVID-19. The journalist made the announcement Friday, three days after anchor Chris Cuomo revealed he’s been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Baldwin, 40, said on Instagram she is “okay,” adding, “It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon. Chills, aches, fever.”

The CNN Newsroom host, who lives in New York, has been following CDC, federal and local guidelines prior to the diagnosis.

“I’ve been social distancing. Doing ALL the things we’re being told to do. Still — it got me,” she shared.

Baldwin noted she’s healthy with “no underlying conditions.”

“Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones,” she added.

Baldwin concluded by saying she “adored” Bill Withers and is listening to the singer-songwriter on repeat. News broke Friday the soul legend behind classics like “Ain’t No Sunshine,” “Lovely Day” and “Lean on Me” died earlier this week from heart complications.
