George Stephanopoulos says he’s tested positive for coronavirus just a few weeks after his wife contracted it.
The ‘GMA’ anchor made the revelation Monday morning … telling his cohosts, Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan, that his spouse, Ali Wentworth, was on the mend and getting better after a recent bout with COVID-19 that left her with a high fever and other symptoms.
In the same breath, George — who is working from home — said he too had recently tested positive. The somewhat good news is GS says his case of coronavirus appears to be asymptomatic … he says he hasn’t shown any of the typical signs of illness.
In fact, George even goes so far as to say he’s feeling great. It also sounds like George is gonna keep working. He shares two daughters with Ali, and he’s been their primary caretaker while his wife has been under the weather.
As we’ve reported … NBC, CBS and CNN — all based in NYC — have had staffers test positive, including Chris Cuomo … who has been battling symptoms.
That’s more a sign of how badly NY has been hit by the pandemic, than anything else.
We hope they both recover just fine.
