CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s wife just shared some more hard news about her family’s health.
After both she and her husband went through a bout of the coronavirus, Cristina Cuomo revealed in a social media post that their 14-year-old son Mario has also tested positive.

“This virus has created a different version of me. My hope is to be stronger, healthier, smarter about the virus at large,” Cristina Cuomo wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one day and terrible the next, I am now working hard to get my son, Mario, through the virus.”
“My heart hurts more than my head over his infection,” she added. “I’m applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins,” Cuomo said.
“Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can’t get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all,” she added.
Dad Chris Cuomo also mentioned his son’s health during his podcast Wednesday while interviewing his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “The virus works its way through the family. It was me, then it was Cristina, and now Mario has the same symptoms she had. He’s got the coronavirus now, it’s working its way through, they’re doing fine,” he said.
Chris Cuomo re-emerges
The announcement came days after Chris Cuomo was recorded climbing up the stairs of his home to mark the end of his own coronavirus quarantine.
“Here it is. The official reentry from the basement. Cleared by the CDC,” he said dramatically. “A little sweaty. I just worked out, happens.”
“This is what I’ve been dreaming of literally for weeks. My wife, she doesn’t have the fever, she doesn’t have the symptoms anymore,” Chris declared as Cristina cowered jokingly.
Cuomo jokes about quarantine
“I’m still a little scared, so I’ll just give you one of these,” he remarked, opting to give a hand gesture to his wife and children instead of a hug. “This is the dream. Just to be back up here doing normal things. Thank you for being so nice to me,” Cuomo said to daughter Carolina.
Carolina and her brother didn’t seem particularly excited by the event, which could be because their father has been out of the basement before.
A Long Island bicyclist claims that he had a confrontation with Chris Cuomo on Easter Sunday outdoors on a property that is under development. The next day on his radio show, Cuomo seemed to confirm that the disagreement had taken place.
