Writer-comedian Ali Wentworth, the wife of “Good Morning America” co-host George Stephanopoulos, has tested positive for the coronavirus.
She announced the development Wednesday on her Instagram account:
“I have tested positive for the coronavirus. I’ve never been sicker. High fever. Horrific body aches. Heavy chest. I’m quarantined from my family,” Wentworth wrote in a post to her 185,000 followers.
“This is pure misery,” she added with the hashtag #stayhome.
Wentworth’s post followed comments made by Stephanopoulos on “GMA” earlier in the day. He said Wentworth “has developed some symptoms.”
“While she’s recovering as she goes through this, I’m going to be broadcasting from home and we’ll be working as long as we can,” he added.
Wentworth, who is also an author and producer, went on “GMA” to describe her situation while under quarantine in her home.
“First of all, thank you for all your well-wishes,” Wentworth said, before joking. “You know I’m feverish if I’m allowing myself to go on national television with no makeup on.”
