60 Minutes correspondent Lesley Stahl revealed on Sunday night that she was hospitalized after becoming infected with the coronavirus.

"After two weeks at home in bed, weak, fighting pneumonia, and really scared, I went to the hospital," she said. "I found an overworked, nearly overwhelmed staff." Stahl praised the doctors and nurses who treated her, saying each one was "kind, sympathetic, gentle, and caring from the moment I arrived until the moment days later when I was wheeled out through a gauntlet of cheering medical workers. In the face of so much death, they celebrate their triumphs."
