    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin said Friday that she has tested positive for the coronavirus.

    Baldwin announced her diagnosis in an Instagram post.

    "I am OKAY," she wrote. "It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon. Chills, aches, fever."

    "I've been social distancing. Doing ALL the things we're being told to do. Still—it got me," she wrote. "I'm healthy... no underlying conditions... Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones."

    She said she looks forward to getting back on TV and thanked the doctors and nurses "who are doing the real work right now."

    Baldwin isn't the first CNN personality to test positive. Chris Cuomo, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's brother, tested positive earlier this week and has been quarantined in his basement, where he is still broadcasting his show.
