CNN's Don Lemon tears up over friend Chris Cuomo's coronavirus diagnosis

Amid his coronavirus diagnosis and resulting quarantine, Chris Cuomo's colleagues are missing him and rooting for him. The 49-year-old CNN anchor announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus. "So in these difficult times that seem to get more difficult and complicated, I just found out that I am positive for coronavirus," the journalist shared on Instagram. "I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive. I just hope I didn't give it to the kids and [my wife] Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness! I am quarantined in my basement. I will do my shows from here." Dabbing his eyes with a tissue, Don Lemon told the viewers, "I said I wasn't going to do this. He's probably sitting at home laughing at me. So, here's the thing – Chris and I are really good friends, we live near each other – so, when I walk into work every day, I have to walk by where Chris is, I usually go to his office and we just say hello. Anyway, he's just not here and we have a great relationship," he added before blotting his tears again. Indeed, Cuomo was at the helm of his nightly broadcast, this time hosting from his basement, where he is quarantining away from his family.
