Dear Commons Community,
Fox News anchor Neil Cavuto has COVID-19 and is urging people to get vaccinated.
“Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation,” Cavuto said in a statement from Fox News Media. “It’s not, because I did and I’m surviving this because I did.” As reported in The New York Times.
The veteran anchor has multiple sclerosis, survived cancer and lives with a heart condition.
Mr. Cavuto, who is vaccinated against Covid, said he learned about the tests results Monday after his show, “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” and was not on the air Tuesday.
Mr. Cavuto has been very public with his health issues throughout the years. He was treated for cancer in the 1980s and had open-heart surgery in 2016. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1997.
Mr. Cavuto’s announcement came on the same day that CNN anchor John King disclosed on air that he has multiple sclerosis. Mr. King brought up his diagnosis while discussing the death of former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Monday of complications from Covid-19.
We wish Mr. Cavuto and Mr. King well!
