Chris Cuomo Says Wife Cristina Has Completely Different Symptoms of COVID-19
Chris Cuomo is stressing on how little we know about the novel coronavirus that's plaguing the world. He used his recently diagnosed wife as an example.
Chris Cuomo of "Primetime with Cuomo" is might finally be on his way to recovery from COVID-19. Unfortunately, his wife was just diagnosed with the virus, so he's not home free.
Cuomo, 49, spoke with CNN's Anderson Cooper on Thursday about the new development and how it's affecting his household. The clip of the segment is found below.
We really don't know much
The journalist totally blames himself for his wife, Cristina Greeven's COVID-19 diagnosis — and so does she. Right now, the couple's home is being run by the kids.
Cuomo revealed that he and his wife are doing separate self-quarantines. When asked why he explained that he doesn't really know if he's immune despite having had the virus.
As such, he thinks his wife could give him the virus again. According to Cuomo, most of the medical advisors appearing on television don't have a lot of information, and we're all learning as we go along.
Cuomo compares symptoms
Another unusual occurrence is that Greeven's suffering is in stark comparison to her husband's. "We have completely different symptoms, thank God," said Cuomo.
He insisted that his wife is stronger than him before going through the list of her symptoms. Cuomo points to the lack of facts about the virus as a source of fear within the population.
A "Lord of the Flies" home
Meanwhile, Cuomo's 17-year-old daughter will be in charge of the house. She's "stepping up," Cuomo said. He then joked that the house is now like "Lord of the Flies," a 1950s novel in which the kids are in charge.
I’m doing “better than I deserve” but “this was tough for Cristina to get it,” says @chriscuomo, sharing an update on his family after both he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus #CNNTownHall https://t.co/cHHHqOOPRn pic.twitter.com/zmPARSekuz— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) April 17, 2020
His brother responded by noting how difficult it is to keep the virus at one in a multiple-person household. It's not like some people who quarantine in a hotel and don't even take out their empty plates from the room.
Greeven speaks on her diagnosis
Greeven also spoke up about her new situation, taking to Instagram on Thursday with a throwback photo of her and her daughter on a sandy beach in swimsuits.
"You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice," she began a lengthy caption. Further on, she touched on the roles her kids have played and how they grew up overnight.

You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice. #bobmarley 🤢 Covid-19 got me. 🤢 A seemingly sinus-related infection was my first symptom. But the only frustrating part is I can’t be there for my kids right now in the way they need me as Chris is in isolation too still, no fever and feeling better. Bella, Mario and Carolina have grown up overnight—Bella, our 17-year-old daughter, stepped up cleaning, doing laundry, cooking for her siblings and getting them situated with google classroom, and caregiving her mother and father. Mario, her assistant. So much gratitude for them. I can’t wait to wrap my arms around them again. ♥️ ♥️♥️ I am committed to this naturopathic route more than ever. Support the immune system, not suppress it. Pooling anecdotal evidence and sharing methods for recovery are important. Why? Communication is all we’ve got right now. Please keep sharing your stories. It’s the only way we achieve freedom from fear. Staying strong is the battle.
The 50-year-old magazine editor is most looking forward to hugging her three kids again when she recovers. In the meantime, she encouraged followers to share suggestions and stories of their battles.
