CNN’s Chris Cuomo announced Tuesday morning that he was diagnosed with coronavirus, and he talked about it on his show Tuesday night.

What’s going on:

  • Cuomo announced he tested positive for COVID-19 but promised to anchor his prime-time show from the basement of his house.
  • Cuomo addressed his diagnosis when he opened his show.
  • Cuomo said: “I tested positive. Scary, yes, as you might imagine — but better me than you. My concern is what I may have put on my family, just like you would. That is hurting me way more than anything the virus can do.”
  • Cuomo said: “You do not want this.”

Some context:

  • Cuomo looked pale Monday night while broadcasting his prime-time show, according to Associated Press.
  • Cuomo’s older brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, talked about his brother Tuesday morning.
  • He said: “It’s my family, it’s your family, it’s all of our families,” he said. “This virus is so insidious, and we have to keep that in mind.”
