Chris Cuomo of 'CNN' Chipped His Tooth from 'Shivering So Much' Amid COVID-19 Diagnosis
On Wednesday, April 1, 2020, CNN host Chris Cuomo appeared on his show “Cuomo Prime Time” and gave an update of his COVID-19 diagnosis. He revealed how the coronavirus was affecting his overall health.
This week, Cuomo, 49, posted a Twitter video that was taped from his basement where he addressed his coronavirus diagnosis. While speaking to Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the medical professional revealed that Cuomo had suffered from “the rigors.”
According to the host, “It was like somebody was beating me with a piñata. I was shivering so much that … I chipped my tooth.” Cuomo is currently quarantined away from his family.
“This virus came at me”
He tested positive for the coronavirus earlier in the week. On Tuesday he revealed that he’s had sleepless nights, fever at night (that reached up to 103 degrees at one point), and other symptoms.
I've never seen anything like it
During his Wednesday show, he shared: “This virus came at me — I’ve never seen anything like it.” However, having battled the virus for a few days, the star felt that he now knew what he was dealing with.
Cuomo also shared that he had body aches and tremors that he couldn’t stop. The television personality even hallucinated after staying up all night.
He confessed to hearing his father, the late Mario Cuomo, talking to him. The star also saw people from college and others he hadn’t seen in a long time.
