Ali Wentworth tested positive for the coronavirus.
Comedian and wife of ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos confirmed his diagnosis of COVID-19 on Instagram on Wednesday, revealing that she “has never been this sick.”
“I tested positive for the Corona virus. I have never been so sick. High fever. Horrible body pains. Heavy chest. I am quarantined by my family. “
She accompanied her health update with a solemn image of herself lying in bed while sick, describing her battle with the coronavirus as “pure misery”.
Earlier on Wednesday, Stephanopoulos revealed on “Good Morning America” that he would broadcast from his home after Wentworth “developed certain symptoms” compatible with COVID-19, although he has not confirmed whether she had or not the virus.

“Ali has developed symptoms, so she is upstairs right now,” Stephanopoulos told his “GMA” co-hosts. “While she is recovering, I will broadcast from home and we will work as long as possible. “
The couple share two daughters: Elliott, 17, and Harper, 14.
On her Instagram post, Wentworth urged everyone to “stay home” to limit the spread of the coronavirus, a similar message she shared last week while participating in the #istayhome challenge.

Her acting credits include “In Living Color”, “Seinfeld”, “Jerry Maguire”, “Office Space” and “It’s Complicated”.
