CONCERN FOR HIS FAMILY

Chris's first concern has been for his wife and children, and in order to safeguard their health, he has self-isolated in his basement from where he continues to do his reporting and commenting on the crisis. He wrote:

"I just hope I didn't give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!"

A new section of "The Purist" site is titled “Quarantine Cuisine,” and is publishing healthy recipes the first of which was a veggie taco dish created by Chef Adam Kenworthy.

KEEPING FIT IN QUARANTINE

Cristina has been writing and extolling readers to create their own fitness programs to execute at home. She revealed that she has been doing the same:

"Last week, I was struggling to make time for movement as I slumped at my desk all day re-focusing my wellness business. So, this week, I forced myself to commit to an early morning daily practice."

The Governor of New York STate addressed his brother's condition at a recent briefing. Andrew Cuomo spoke about his brother's diagnosis and expressed natural concern, but also the belief that his brother would overcome the virus. He said:

"This virus is the great equalizer. My brother, Chris, is positive for coronavirus. (...) He's young; in good shape; strong -— not as strong as he thinks, but — he'll be fine."

BROADCASTING FROM THE BASEMENT

Chris continues to anchor his 9 p.m. show "Cuomo Prime Time" from his basement, despite his illness. He wrote about his symptoms:

"I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath."

FIRST COVID-19 CASE IN CNN

Since the Coronavirus crisis began, CNN has had most of its employees working from home, with anchors broadcasting from their own residences or small studios that the network has sanitized at regular intervals. Chris Cuomo is the first CNN employee to be diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic started.

Like his brother, Governor Cuomo, Chris continues to let people to the fact that the only way to stop the spread of the virus and flatten the curve of infection is to practice social distancing.

New York state, under the leadership of Andrew Cuomo, has shut down all non-essential services and businesses and is busy preparing vast field hospitals to receive the sick. The motto seems to Be: stay inside, stay healthy.
