CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin has tested positive for COVID-19.

Baldwin made the news public on Friday, saying she’s experiencing symptoms similar to those of fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo.

”I am OK. It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon. Chills, aches, fever,” she said in a statement posted to Instagram. “I’ve been social distancing. Doing ALL the things we’re being told to do. Still – it got me.”

Cuomo 49, who revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, appeared on CNN’s Global Town Hall broadcast Thursday night from his basement to give an update on his health, which included him sharing he “lost 13 pounds in three days.” He also said he’s still suffering from a fever, profuse sweating, headaches and pains in his face.
