Neil Cavuto talks battle with COVID, urges vaccinations: 'Take the political speaking points and toss them'

Cavuto, host of “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” tested positive for the coronavirus last week yet credited his vaccination with having made the battle more bearable. Cavuto was a vulnerable candidate for the virus, having faced cancer in the 1980s, a multiple sclerosis diagnosis in 1997 and an open heart surgery in 2016. 

“While I’m somewhat stunned by this news, doctors tell me I’m lucky as well,” Cavuto said in a statement released by Fox News. “Had I not been vaccinated, and with all my medical issues, this would be a far more dire situation.”

In his first interview since announcing he’d tested positive for COVID-19, Cavuto shared he had had monoclonal antibody treatment and was “feeling better.” He regretted, however, that his wife also contracted the virus.
