Chris Cuomo announced that his wife Cristina Greeven Cuomo has tested positive for COVID-19.
Speaking with his brother and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo during his show "Cuomo Prime Time," the journalist revealed that his wife has also contracted coronavirus. "Families all across the state and the country are experiencing... its very fair for a family to be one and done," Chris shared with his brother on the show. "Christina now has COVID, she is now positive and it just breaks my heart. It is the one thing I was hoping wouldn't happen and now it has."
He continued, "Obviously I've been a little bit of a mess about it today so I've been talking to Andrew about it a lot. The person who's not upset is Christina. Christina takes everything in stride and so far we're hoping, and a lot of this anecdotal because we don't know that much, she lost her sense of smell and taste. This is not science, but anecdotally the case that I hear about that are more mild tend to have that. I didn't have that."
The CNN anchor revealed he had coronavirus back in March and since then has kept the public updated on his symptoms.
Cuomo also added that his "kids stepped up" to help as his wife deals with the virus.
"Mom is the core. When mom goes down, you feel it. They have stepped up. They're helping each other. They're more quiet. They're focused on her and hopefully it makes the family stronger," he told his brother. "But I gotta tell you, it's tough. It really makes me understand how people are dealing with so much and so much more than we are all over the place for a long time."
