22 hrs ago.
LOS ANGELES (AP) Fox News Channel anchor Neil Cavuto tested positive
for COVID-19, which he said was surprising but made him grateful that he
Cavuto, who learned of the test results after Monday's episode of Your
World with Neil Cavuto, wasn't on the air Tuesday.
While Im somewhat stunned by this news, doctors tell me Im lucky as
well. Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this
would be a far more dire situation, Cavuto said in a statement released
by Fox News.
Its not, because I did and Im surviving this because I did. I hope
anyone and everyone gets that message loud and clear. Get vaccinated,
for yourself and everyone around you, the journalist said.
Cavuto, who had open-heart surgery in 2016 and was treated for cancer in
the 1980s, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997.
Also Tuesday, CNN's John King revealed on his Inside Politics show
that he has multiple sclerosis, which makes him immunocompromised. So,
Im grateful youre all vaccinated, he said during a panel discussion.
CNN mandates that all of its employees who work in an office or in the
field with other people be vaccinated.
Fox News employees are required to let the company know their
vaccination status and, if they havent been vaccinated, to be tested
regularly for COVID-19.
Cavuto also anchors Fox News Channel's Cavuto Live on Saturdays and
Fox Business Network's weekday show Cavuto: Coast to Coast.
