ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos has tested positive for Covid-19. The “Good Morning America,” anchor announced his coronavirus diagnosis on the morning news show Monday. He said he has no symptoms.
“I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had a cough, never had shortness of breath,” he said on “GMA.” “I’m feeling great.”
Stephanopoulos, 59, said it came as “no surprise” that he got coronavirus after his wife, actress Ali Wentworth, tested positive.
Stephanopoulos and his wife, along with their two daughters, 14-year-old Harper and 17-year-old Elliott, had been self-isolating at home in New York, with Wentworth quarantined to her own room.
“We are basically acting to the outside world as if we have it,” Stephanopoulos, a former White House communications director under President Clinton, said on “GMA” last Thursday. “We are staying inside the house. I am the only one who goes in and out. Somebody does have to take care of her. That’s me. But so far I feel fine and I am not showing any symptons.”
Wentworth, 55, described her symptoms when she revealed her diagnosis, including a “high fever, horrific body aches and heavy chest.”
