Fans also gave Cohen their well wishes on Twitter. Monica Lewinsky asked fans to send heart emojis to wish the Watch What Happens Live host a speedy recovery. Other fans tweeted sympathy for Cohen.

Our Lives host Shannon Fisher tweeted that Cohen's announcement will encourage more fans to take self-quarantining and isolating earnestly. "Hopefully, people will start taking all quarantine measures more seriously once people they know (in real life or through a screen) are diagnosed with coronavirus," she wrote. "One would hope everyone would take this seriously regardless, but, sadly, many have not. Get well, @Andy!"

Other fans wrote that they were upset that Cohen was diagnosed with slightly more humorous tweets than simple "Get well soon"messages.

Other fans asked Cohen to use his platform to speak about making coronavirus testing more available to people in America, who have struggled to get tested. "[C]an you please voice the concerns of those who can't even attain a test bc it's unavailable to them, or they can't afford it, & are afraid," poet Charlyne Yi wrote.
