Andy Cohen Shares Health Update After Coronavirus Diagnosis; Says “I Am Getting Better Every Day”

Andy Cohen took to his Instagram Stories to share an update on his health after announcing that he was tested positive for Coronavirus. “Thank you all for the amazing messages,” the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen host wrote.


“I am getting better every day and can’t wait to see everybody again.”

He urged his followers to “stay home” and to “stay smart” during this crisis.

He added, “And thank you to the medical professionals on the front lines!”

As previously reported, Cohen revealed on Friday, March 20, that he has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

“After a few days of self-quarantine, and not feeling great, I have tested positive for Coronavirus,” he wrote on Instagram while sharing a selfie of himself. “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.”

Cohen continued, “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 comes after he announced that Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen was going to be filmed from his home in New York City amid the pandemic. For the first episode scheduled for Sunday, March 22, Jerry O’Connell, Nene Leakes, and Ramona Singer were set to appear.

“Our show is arguably the most lo-tech show in late night in its current form. So the idea of taking it down even further a few notches is just ironic and hilarious,” Cohen told Variety on Friday. “I mean, 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.”

He continued, “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.”
