CNN "Newsroom" host, Brooke Baldwin, set to return to work and help other virus-infected patients as she tests Negative for COVID-19.


Brooke Baldwin is "virus-free!" after battling with COVID-19 for over two weeks. She took to Instagram to share the great news with a video of her getting tested.

It was a nasal swab test which she didn't like very much, as shown by her reaction after the health worker took swabs from her nostrils.

The procedure had the journalist's followers feeling sorry for her, and some even likened it to a nasal colonoscopy.

Apart from confirming that she was no longer infected with the virus, Brooke also got the test done because she wishes to donate plasma for people who need it to fight the viral infection.

She also appreciated the health workers on the frontline and all her well-wishers in her video caption, which read:

"...Thank you again to the docs and the nurses on the frontlines doing the real work. Again ?? THANK YOU ?? for all your love..."


The CNN host who announced that she had contracted the virus on the third of April will be going back to work on the 27th. Her diagnosis came three days after another CNN host, Chris Cuomo, also tested positive for the virus.

Brooke informed the public that she had no underlying health issues and also claimed that she had been cautious, in her announcement.

The 40-year-old came out with her Coronavirus diary, where she shared details about the ordeal.


Throughout her illness, Baldwin documented the experience and shared it via her Instagram page. Brooke shared her second update after a week of illness when she thought she was getting better but suddenly started feeling sick again.

A few days later, she posted a picture of herself in a pink set with grey sneakers, which was taken on day 10. She got all dressed up to remember what it was like to actually leave her home.


By then, most of her symptoms, which included fever, chills, body aches, excessive sweating, and a swollen gland under her jaw had died down, leaving her with some remnants of a "head cold."

After two weeks, Baldwin's body had recovered to a large extent, and two days later, the 40-year-old came out with her Coronavirus diary, where she shared details about the ordeal.

Brooke has now recovered completely and will be back on the "Newsroom" real soon.
