George Stephanopoulos Tests Positive for Coronavirus

ABC News' chief anchor says he has been "basically asymptomatic."

Good Morning America anchor George Stephanopoulos on Monday revealed on the show he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

ABC News' chief anchor received his test results after his wife, Ali Wentworth, had contracted the virus. He said he assumed he would catch it. 

"I'm one of those cases that are basically asymptomatic," Stephanopoulos said on GMA. "I've never had a fever, never had chills, never had headache, never had a cough, never had shortness of breath. I'm feeling great."

As for Wentworth, he said, "She is feeling much better now. She is going on her fifth day with no fever, which is really a great sign."

Stephanopoulos has continued to work from home and later, on April 21, revealed on Twitter that he has tested positive for COVID-19 antibodies and plans to donate plasma in the coming weeks.

"Good news for me and my family," he wrote. "Last week I tested positive for Covid antibodies, confirming I cleared the virus after weeks without symptoms. I’ve also signed up for a clinical trial to donate my blood plasma and expect to make the donation in the coming weeks."
