Cristina Cuomo gave a health update on how her husband has been doing, following his coronavirus diagnosis: "He seems slightly better, but still feels the incredible lethargy."


Chris Cuomo was among the thousands of Americans diagnosed with coronavirus amid this global pandemic.

Recently, the journalist's wife, Cristina, gave a lengthy health update on Instagram after more than a week of his initial diagnosis.

Like what several other patients have experienced, Chris' symptoms such as "chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever," come and go.

His fever fluctuated over the past few days, although his oxygen levels tested normally using an oximeter. Although he can taste and smell, the CNN host's appetite has not gone back to normal.

Cristina also outlined a list of her husband's "Corona Protocol," which included diet and exercise. His food was mostly organic and aimed to clean the liver, while exercises were meant to help in breathing.

Chris' doctor, Dr. Lancaster, previously helped cure Cristina of Lyme Disease and her mother from breast cancer. Cristina also showed gratitude to the many who supported them as she wrote:

"Thank you for amazing homemade goodies from friends and the outpouring of love + humor so many of you have provided. They are oxygen for these biblical times."


Since being diagnosed, Chris already lost 13 pounds and sometimes got hallucinations from the symptoms that come up and down.


Chris previously shared an x-ray of his lungs during his "Cuomo Prime Time" show. The image showed a little fluid in his chest, which had then not yet progressed to pneumonia.

Since testing positive for COVID-19, the host chose to live in his home basement, away from his wife and kids.

Despite trying to remain positive at this trying time, Chris can't help but feel depressed with his current state. Last Tuesday, he said:

"I feel lousy because it's night time. I'm a little depressed because yesterday and today, the fever came back with a little bit more gusto than it had in the past couple of days."

He further shared the difficulty he experienced having a fever for nearly the entire day. "It just wears you down emotionally," he adds.

While several Americans have already begun observing self-quarantine, there still remains a few who do not follow social distancing protocol.
