Seth Doane Coronavirus
On March 16, 2020 Seth revealed that he has been diagnosed with COVID-19. He is one of the six CBS News employees who have tested positive. He appeared on “CBS This Morning” on Monday where he described his symptoms, testing and coronavirus diagnosis, and his experience living under quarantine.
He said that his first symptom was a little cough while they were out covering the Coronavirus story. He however said that it’s been quite mild. He added that he has had “colds and flus worse than this.”
“I coughed a little bit, just enough to worry the people I was with here. We were out working covering this story. I started to have a little bit of a cough that worried me. For the most part, I feel okay. As we know, this is a deadly virus. It can be incredibly serious, a major respiratory illness. So far I’ve been lucky. I’ve had a chest pressure almost like you feel like you’ve done a big chest workout. I’ve had a little bit of a cough. I had a relatively mild fever. I’ve had kind of weird aches and pains in places I’m not used to. But honestly, I feel like I’ve had colds and flus worse than this. I’ve never been totally out for the whole day in bed. I’ve been up, able to talk with people. So for me, luckily, it’s been quite mild.”
He said that since testing positive he has taken quarantine seriously. He said he has not left the house even to take out the trash.
“But as soon as I learned I had been exposed to people who had tested positive, we have been in lockdown here inside the house. As you know, Italy has been locked down. People have been told they have to remain at home. Since I have had exposure to positive cases, I was absolutely not allowed to leave the house. I haven’t even left to take out the trash. In fact, our neighbors just brought some groceries to us and left them on the front doorstep. From the moment I learned that I was exposed to positive cases, we’ve taken this quarantine seriously, because you have to stop the spread.”
