Most people who are becoming infected with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are not very vocal about it. A few celebrities have made brief press statements through their agents, but nobody seems to be sharing details about their struggle with the virus. This is partly due to people being generally unwilling to share health information, but also because for many the severity of the disease and the need to rest make it difficult to do much of anything. So, people are not physically able to provide daily video updates about their condition. CNN News Anchor, Chris Cuomo, has been continuing his regular reporting and has been sharing his personal experience of what it’s like having COVID-19. Cuomo learned he had the virus on 31 Mar 2020.
