Chris Cuomo has revealed that his wife, Cristina, has tested positive for coronavirus.
The CNN anchor revealed her diagnosis while on a video chat with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“Cristina 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 shared in the interview.
Chris added later on, “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 Cristina.”
“Cristina 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.”
Chris has been open about his own battle with the virus, which he tested positive for earlier this month.
