ABC-TV host George Stephanopoulos revealed he has tested positive for the novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19).

Two weeks ago, Stephanopoulos' wife, Ali Wentworth, confirmed her diagnosis for the virus.

Stephanopoulos announced his diagnosis remotely on Monday, April 13 on "Good Morning, America," which he co-hosts.

Stephanopoulos, 59, also hosts the Sunday morning ABC News program, "This Week With George Stephanopoulos."

He said he has been asymptomatic.

"I’ve never had a fever, never had chills, never had a headache, never had a cough, never had shortness of breath," he said. "I’m feeling great."

After working on the Michael Dukakis 1988 presidential campaign, Stephanopoulos became a leading member of Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign before becoming an aide in the Clinton administration.
