Fox News co-host Juan Williams has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to The Daily Wire:

Fox News co-host Juan Williams tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, prompting the other co-hosts of “The Five” to broadcast remotely and Williams to go into quarantine.

Rumors circulated about the 66-year-old Williams’ diagnosis after he was not seen on Thursday’s episode “The Five,” and two sources informed The New York Times that he had tested positive that morning at Fox News headquarters in New York City.

A Fox spokesperson declined to confirm whether Williams had tested positive for COVID-19, citing employee confidentiality, but Williams confirmed to The Hill that he had contracted the virus and is quarantining at a hotel in Washington, D.C., to avoid spreading the illness to his wife. He added that he is experiencing “flu-like symptoms” such as chills and headaches.

“I’m not great but I’m not dying or anything,” Williams told The Daily Beast. “I’m worried about myself and my family. My wife doesn’t want me to come back to the house right now. On lots of levels it’s concerning.”

Williams’ diagnosis has caused “The Five” to go remote for the foreseeable future.

Sorry but Hoorah he such an A** on The 5
U cant debate or reason with him, so emotional
Other leftists guests U can reason with, Not Juan
I can see the stress in eveyone else on the 5
Needs some field work after layup IE cover some riot or election issue
Always argues, ignores questions, blocks movement forward

No one should take satisfaction in seeing a fellow human being afflicted with this
horrid virus. I do not agree politically in most instances with Juan, but wish him well in his struggle with the virus. This is not the time for schadenfreude. It is the time for compassion. Get well soon Juan!

He will blame it on Trump although it was a Biological Weapon China developed. I just wonder if Obama and Biden helped finance its development?

When I saw the picture of Obama and Fauci together in the Wuhan laboratory, I became convinced that the Chinese and the Democrats were in cahoots to release the virus into the US to harm Trump’s re-election chances. Just another arrow in the quiver as Nancy Pelosi would say, but a very deadly arrow and if this theory could be proven they should all be executed.

Reply to  Mannie

‘Horrid virus’? Please. You’ve fallen victim to the propaganda. This ‘horrid virus’ has a fatality rate less than 1/2 of 1 percent (0.2 or 0.3 percent)! Early estimates were highly inaccurate because not all people with Wuhan virus were being identified.
Admittedly, if 1 person dies from this purposeful onslaught, that’s one too many for which the Chinese perpetrators must pay the price. And a heavy price must be levied.
Please educate yourself on the real fatality rate of this virus before you post hysterical comments.
As to Juan Williams, let’s hope he’s quarantined until hell freezes over!!!

Did you notice the quotes around “Horrid Virus”. They might have indicated something.
Also from what I have seen your estimate of the mortality rate is still 10 times higher than reality.

There’s no doubt that they have inflated the numbers, tried to keep us scared, and are using the virus to collapse our system of economy and government, but all that said, the virus is real. My favorite pastor and his father just passed away of the virus a few weeks ago. He was perhaps 50, at the most, and was athletic.

ALL deaths are ‘labeled’ Covid. And they’ve made it very hard to make available Hydrochloroxiquine. We have Fauci, Bill Gates & Left Wing governors to thank for making it inaccessible – because it works and is affordable. They’ll do anything to keep jobs at a minimum and tank our economy.

He has practically ruined the FIVE with his bone headed, bull headed attitude about President Trump. Other liberal panel replacements for Williams do a much better job of carrying on a reasonable debate. Williams hates Trump and just wants to get into shouting matches. Permanently replacing him on the FIVE would really improve the show!

I suspect I may have had it in January but was unaware at the time that Kung Flu was even a thing. So I had no reason to take the not yet in existence test for a disease I didn’t know existed.
Since I only have a few comorbidities, like age 75, weight 240, Afib, etc. It took me a few days to get over it.

If it is so “horrid” then why are in excess of 99.9% of those afflicted recovering on their own, if they even know that they have it? Most do not know they have it without later testing positive for having the anti bodies in their blood.

I have noticed that when the virus deaths go up all other reasons for death go down. But, when this was pointed out to CDC by a well known university (John Hopkins) it was ignored and not even mentioned in news stations. What we need is a chart showing how many new deaths (without underlying causes) can be attributed to covid-19.

Can Juan be permanently left off of The Five. He is so annoying. Juan getting COVID is a perfect example of how the lefty loons want to blame the COVID spread on conservatives, when all of the states with the highest death rates from COVID are the northern blue states. New Jersey and New York top the list, yet they want to blame southern and midwestern red states. I don’t think so. It would be great if Juan became one of the COVID death statistics the liberals love to use to justify keeping us shut down.

Yes, U.S. corporations, helped fund the lab in Communist China for the purpose of creating medicines and other medical awareness on diseases and virus.
As you all know, China makes most of our medicines and PPE.
So do I believe this China virus (super flu) was released on purpose, Yes!
China could no longer stop our economic greatness created by President Trump. So CCP created chaos in the world to stifle America with a virus that can be easily treated with Hydroxychloroquine and a Z pack. Oh, but oh No, the psycho lefties say it doesn’t work.
And countless lives have died because of fake news and the silencing of common sense doctors around the world who use Hydroxychloroquine.
CCP does not care how many of there own people are sacrificed for the betterment of the communist way of life as long as America is not First!

I think this virus was designed and allowed to get out for the sole purpose of helping the democrats perpetrate the fraud in our voting system. Allowed to scare the hell out of the American people to stay home and request mail in ballots. The purpose for them to be able to manipulate the fraud through these ballots. Remember the obama administration gave 40 million to the wuhan labs for reasons unknown. Now you know what it was for. People you need to wake up and investigate for yourselves regardless of what the news puts out. The truth is out there if you are not too lazy to seek it. Afraid we are too late unless President Trump wins his lawsuits regarding this election. If not, then American will change and become what obama could not get done in his 8 years. Dreary days are ahead for America and will continue as long as dems hold the office! JMHO!
