As we reported earlier George Stephanopoulos, the 59-year-old ABC anchor and “Good Morning America” host tested positive on April 11th for the Coronavirus, but has now announced ‘I’m Cured.’
On the heels of his wife, Ali Wentworth, celebrating her recovery from the deadly virus after completing 16-days of self-quarantine. Stephanopoulos announced that he had tested positive for the disease.
George Stephanopoulos Miraculous Coronavirus Recovery
But just days after testing positive George Stephanopoulos tweeted this morning that he has been “cleared” of COVID-19 after testing positive for antibodies.
“Good news for me and my family. Last week I tested positive for Covid antibodies, confirming I cleared the virus after weeks without symptoms,” the 59-year-old co-host of ABC’s “Good Morning America” said in a tweet.
Good news for me and my family. Last week I tested positive for Covid antibodies, confirming I cleared the virus after weeks without symptoms. I’ve also signed up for a clinical trial to donate my blood plasma and expect to make the donation in the coming weeks

Amazingly, Stephanopoulos ‘I’m Cured’ tweet comes after a week of him being blasted by his Hampton neighbors.
After announcing he tested positive for coronavirus at an urgent care facility in Bridgehampton on April 11th. Hampton residents were outraged seeing the ABC Newsman strolling through town without a mask on.
According to the town of East Hampton website, a mandate for people to wear masks in public was already in place even before Governor Andrew Cuomo’s executive order saying everyone must wear a face-covering went into effect on April 17.
There were also multiple stories posted on the New York Post’s Page Six website documenting Stephanopoulos being a coronavirus hypocrite after all his lecturing about President Trump.
The GMA host was spotted by Page Six on Monday as he took a mile-long stroll around East Hampton chatting on the phone with a mask hanging around his neck.
One outraged Hampton resident who witnessed Stephanopoulos strolling merrily about town said:
“For somebody who reports on the pandemic every day, and is broadcasting guidelines about safe social distancing, George didn’t really seem to care.
He was on his own, walking through the lanes and past East Hampton Guild Hall, on his cellphone the whole time, yakking with his mask around his neck.
He tested positive, his wife tested positive, why can’t he follow the local mandates to wear a mask in public, why can’t he just stay home?”
Stephanopoulos defended himself telling The New York Times:
“I was staying home, I was self-monitoring, I never had a temperature, and I never had any of the classic symptoms,”
“I was wearing a mask and gloves in White’s,”
Sorry, George, unlike fake news media hosts, pictures don’t lie.
