On Tuesday, CNN host Chris Cuomo announced that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19, which is caused by the novel coronavirus. After hearing the news, those who watch the anchor on his nightly show "Cuomo Prime Time" may have wondered what that would mean for the news program moving forward.

As stated in a post that the journalist shared to his Twitter, he has no intention of stepping down from his hosting duties. However, the format will look a bit different for the foreseeable future, as he revealed that he intends to film the show from his home where he is currently quarantined.

Cuomo also elaborated on the events that led up to his diagnosis. After revealing that he had been exposed to various individuals who had subsequently tested positive, he had developed "fever, chills and shortness of breath." His post can be seen below.

According to CNN, the TV personality had recently visited the news network's offices in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of New York City on March 27. Following his trip, he had then opted to anchor his show from his home on Monday, prior to publicly revealing his diagnosis.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo elaborated on his brother's positive test result on Tuesday during a New York state daily briefing.

"This virus is the great equalizer," the politician said, adding, "My brother, Chris, is positive for coronavirus. Found out this morning." Continuing, he added that "he'll be fine" as he's "young, in good shape, strong." 

This is not the first time in recent months that news programs have been affected by the ongoing pandemic. "Good Morning America" anchor Robin Roberts and "Today" weatherman Al Roker had both previously opted to conduct their live appearances from their home amid the current health crisis.

Additionally, "Today" star Hoda Kotb had also been moved to tears by a generous donation that was made by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees as a step to fight the coronavirus pandemic. 

"Cuomo Prime Time" airs weeknights at 9 p.m. EDT on CNN.
