CNN icon Chris, wife (Cristina Cuomo’s) and l 14-year-old son, Mario battling with COVID-19, making him the third member of the family to deal with the coronavirus.
Mario’s diagnosis comes just days after his parents recovered from COVID-19.
The CNN anchor ended weeks in isolation on Monday after he was cleared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His wife, Cristina Cuomo, also contracted the virus but has been cleared.
Unfortunately, one of their three children got the virus too and Cristina, 50, revealed she’s doing everything she can to take care of their son, Mario, as he sheds the virus.
“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,” Cristina Cuomo shared on Instagram.
She added that the virus “does not discriminate.”
Cuomo, who is CEO of wellness magazine The Purist, said she kept a diary of the past week, including “remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all.”
“While kids are more resilient, they can suffer same severity of symptoms,” Cuomo said. “I’m applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can’t get him to touch.”
Chris Cuomo, who is the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, has been candid about what it has been like to live with COVID-19. He continued to do his nightly show from his basement while battling the virus.
