American television talk show host Andy Cohen is the latest celebrity to test positive for the novel coronavirus.
The 51-year-old host of the long-running late-night show “Watch What Happens Live” revealed on his Instagram page that he tested positive for coronavirus
“After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus… I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves.”
The revelation is coming hours after Andy Cohen had announced that he would be filming his show without a live audience and from his New York home in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. That plan is now on hold as Cohen said he would be focusing on getting better.
“As much as I felt like I could push through whatever I was feeling to do #WWHL from home, we’re putting a pin in that for now so I can focus on getting better.”
As a result of the spread of the coronavirus, a number of live television shows such as Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show With Steven Colbert, Late Night With Seth Meyers and Full Frontal With Samantha Bee, Wendy Williams’ show, among others, would no longer fil with a live audience.
