Andy Cohen is famously known for hosting Watch What Happens Live. Before his diagnosis, he wanted to host the show from his apartment in West Village, NY. Given that the CDC and local governments have banned public gatherings, shows with audiences have suffered a lot. Taking the show local would have allowed it to air without hassle. However, the sad news of Andy Cohen’s diagnosis came hours after the announcement.

Andy Cohen tested positive for coronavirus

Andy Cohen tests positive for the coronavirus:

The host made the announcement on his Instagram:

After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus.  As much as I felt like I could push through whatever I was feeling to do #WWHL from home, we’re putting a pin in that for now so I can focus on getting better.  I want to thank all the medical professionals who are working tirelessly for all of us, and urge everybody to stay home and take care of themselves.

The news is very unfortunate considering how creative Andy Cohen was to continue his show. He really wanted it to continue so he could entertain his audience during these boring times. In an exclusive interview to Variety, he said:

We’re the show that I still can’t believe gets a live signal out of a very small clubhouse in Soho. So we will now be from my own clubhouse in the West Village. My show has always been something of a little coffee klatch, party-line type show. And this seemed like a very natural extension of not only the show but obviously the times that we’re in right now.

The coronavirus pandemic spreads

Andy Cohen is the latest celebrity to go public with his diagnosis, following Kevin Durant, Idris Elba, and Tom Hanks. Unfortunately, this will not be the last addition to the list. The coronavirus pandemic is spreading exponentially in the US and Europe. The death toll in Italy has crossed that of China. The total number of cases has crossed 300,000 with an outcome death rate of 12%. As countries all over the world go into complete shutdown, remember two things. Wash your hands and stay at home.
