ABC News' George Stephanopoulos has tested positive for COVID-19.

Stephanopoulos revealed on Monday's Good Morning America that he tested positive for the coronavirus over the weekend after his wife, Ali Wentworth, was previously diagnosed. But although Wentworth described having coronavirus as "pure misery," Stephanopoulos said he's 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."

Stephanopoulos later said he did have a "diminished sense of smell" and some lower back pain a few weeks ago, but "that's really been it." He also provided an update on Wentworth, who he said earlier this month he was taking care of while "being careful." Wentworth, Stephanopoulos told viewers, is doing "much, much better," has now had no fever for five days, and is getting out of bed more.

"We're really happy about that," he said.
