Globetrotting journalist Richard Quest tests positive for Coronavirus


CNN journalist Richard Quest is the latest celebrity to test positive for COVID-19.

Richard Quest, aged 58, is the host of CNN International’s Quest Means Business and economics reporter for the network.

He revealed on Monday (20.04.2020) that he tested positive for coronavirus over the weekend.

“I am thankful and grateful that I don’t seem to have any of the horrific symptoms of the others,” Quest told viewers Monday. “I just have a nasty cough which, thankfully tonight because of our excellent technical staff, you haven’t heard me too much spluttering away.”

He said that he will continue to work but will “take it easy if it all gets too much.”

“I feel fine. I feel good,” said Quest, who hosts his show from New York. “And there are important things that you and I need to talk about overnight. such as negative oil and the way the markets are going down and what still needs to be done.”

On Twitter, Quest wrote, “I have caught coronavirus. I am blessed in that I have few symptoms just a cough. I am saving my prayers and thoughts for those less fortunate. Stay in. And protect lives.”

Two other on-air figures at the network, Chris Cuomo and Brooke Baldwin, also have tested positive for the coronavirus.
