Fox News’ Anchor Neil Cavuto Says He Nearly Died After Contracting Coronavirus for Second Time

Neil Cavuto, an immunocompromised Fox anchor who has dissented from the loudest voices at the right-wing network and spoken out in favor of Covid-19 vaccines, revealed on Monday that he had been hospitalized for weeks with a serious case of coronavirus and nearly died.

Cavuto, who is vaccinated, had previously contracted the virus in October. But the anchor, a cancer survivor who has been public about his decades-long battle with multiple sclerosis, had a more mild case back then.

This time, Cavuto said he had a “far, far more serious strand” because his “very compromised immune system” simply hasn’t benefited in the same way from the vaccines as those with healthy immune systems.

Cavuto said that his most recent case of Covid-19 had led to pneumonia and landed him “in intensive care for quite a while.”

“It was really touch and go,” Cavuto said on his Fox Business show on Monday after a leave of absence. “Some of you who’ve wanted to put me out of my misery darn near got what you wished for! So sorry to disappoint you!”
