INTERVIEW WITH GOV. CUOMO
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Cuomo admitted that he has been carrying a burden, which he does not know how to solve despite desperately wanting to, all while being away from his family.
“I haven’t been able to see my mother. I’m not with one of my daughters. That on a personal level is very taxing,” the leader shared.
Cuomo’s mother, Matilda, is the widow of Mario Cuomo, former Governor of New York. The now-governor has three daughters, Cara, Mariah, and Michaella, with his ex-wife Kerry Kennedy. Cuomo also shared:
“I constantly say to myself, ‘What else should I be doing?’ People are dying every day, and I don’t know what else to do, and I know that tomorrow, more people will die.”
Since his diagnosis, Chris lost 13 pounds and experienced a fluctuation in symptoms.
The 62-year-old admitted that he no longer knows how else to help lighten and solve the situation and “that is a terrible weight, and just an oppressive burden.”
New York alone has more cases than any other country in the world and claimed the lives of nearly 10,000 individuals.
Its neighboring state, New Jersey, has around 61,000 cases, while other states have less than 30,000 confirmed cases.
Nearly two million individuals around the globe have contracted the coronavirus, which severely affected economies of several countries.
