NBC News correspondent Morgan Chesky has been diagnosed with coronavirus and has taken to social media to share his story.
Chesky, 34, shared his status in a lengthy message on Twitter in which he explained how he is feeling and talks about the “mental fog” that he’s been in.
“Hey friends, I know I’ve been a bit quieter than usual on here so figured I’d share what I’ve been up to recently,” he began.
“Early last week I noticed I had lost my sense of taste and smell and within a few hours started to feel surprisingly tired and a bit lightheaded. When a cough soon followed, I was fortunately able to get tested and receive my results within 24 hours. Sure enough, after covering a pandemic for the past 6 months I became a part of it when the results Covid-19 came back positive.”
“I spent the next several days in bed treating a dull, but constant headache, heavily fatigued, with occasional pain through my back. After hearing past patients complain of a mental fog, I found out what they meant when basic tasks seemed to become significantly harder to focus on and process,” he wrote.
“Important to note, my ability to breathe was never compromised and I never felt a fever set in. All told, it appears I’m a mild case and for that I feel incredibly blessed.”
Before Morgan became an NBC News Correspondent he was a news anchor at Seattle’s KOMO. Back in 2017 Chesky was named one of BuzzFeed’s 50 Hottest News Anchors In The World.
We can definitely see why.
