The wife of ABC News journalist George Stephanopoulos announced Thursday that she has COVID-19.

Ali Wentworth, an actress and comedian, posted an image to Instagram that showed her in bed and looking miserable.

"I have tested positive for the Corona Virus. I've never been sicker. High fever. Horrific body aches. Heavy chest. I'm quarantined from my family. This is pure misery. #stayhome" she wrote.

Wentworth also appeared on Thursday's "Good Morning America," on which Stephanopoulos is a co-host, to talk about her situation.

"First of all, thank you for all your well-wishes. You know I'm feverish if I'm allowing myself to go on national television with no makeup on," she said.

"What started was I had a real tightness in my chest. I was walking my dog Cooper, and I just felt very, very winded and I assumed, of course, it was because I never work out and I'm out of shape, but it was too heavy for that.

"And I came home, wasn't feeling great and it wasn't until the fever started that I realized this can't be a common summer cold. I went and got tested ... which was three days ago, and now I've had high fevers, sort of 101, 103."

COVID-19 has killed more than 5,000 Americans and continues to infect people nationwide.
