Chris Cuomo’s wife now also has the coronavirus.
The TV host announced that Cristina Cuomo was positive for COVID-19 on his primetime CNN show Wednesday — about two weeks after revealing his own diagnosis.
“Cristina now has COVID, she is now positive,” said Chris, 49, during an interview with his older brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cristina, 50, a magazine editor, had been posting updates about her husband’s condition on Instagram as the family quarantined at home, with Chris living in the basement.
She’s “not upset” about catching the illness and “takes everything in stride,” Chris said.
Her symptoms include a loss of smell and taste, which Chris said he’d heard, anecdotally, was more common in milder cases of the disease.
His side-effects are more severe, and included a fever so extreme, he’d chipped a tooth while shivering.
The governor noted that “it’s very hard for people to quarantine in a home [together] and other people not to get it.”
“In some ways this was inevitable,” Cuomo said. “Luckily it was Cristina and not one of the kids.”
This was just another thing that Cristina could blame her husband for, Cuomo quipped.
“I know it makes a bad situation worse,” he added, but “you’ll get through it.”
During the family’s ordeal, the couple’s three children, however, have “stepped up” and are “helping each other,” Chris said.
“They’re more quiet, they’re focused on her.”
