Peter Tuchman, who has been described as "the most photographed dealer on Wall Street", went on Instagram on Thursday to let his more than 10,000 followers know that he had tested positive for corona virus
The New York stock exchange trader, who calls himself "Einstein on Wall Street" on his Instagram page, revealed the diagnosis with the image of a Corona Extra beer bottle and an assembled emoticon of hands.
"Hi folks, I just thought I was going to let you know that I tested positive for corona. I'm fighting pretty hard. I've never felt so sick in my life …" said Tuchman in the post.
"Great team of doctors, no breathing problems, that's good. Any other problems that are bad will come to the other side. I'll be in touch soon. I'm sending prayers," he added.
At least two other NYSE floor traders from Intercontinental Exchange Inc tested positive for the virus on Tuesday, although, according to a Reuters announcement, strict measures have been taken to prevent infected people from going public while it was open last week.
