Chris Cuomo‘s wife, Cristina Cuomo, has spoken up about her life since she tested positive for the novel coronavirus. 


Weeks after her husband disclosed his COVID-19 status, Cristina Cuomo, has also shared that she tested positive to the virus.

According to People, the mother-of-three opened up about her diagnosis in an Instagram post where she explained: “You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice. COVID-19 got me.”

[Chris Cuomo] who has been feeling better since he announced his COVID-19 status two weeks ago, has continued to host his 9 p.m. program from his home.


She then went on to state that her and her husband’s diagnosis caused her 17-year-old daughter, Bella, to step up and take over cleaning, doing the laundry, cooking for her siblings, Mario and Carolina, and setting them up with their Google classroom.

The most frustrating bit for Cristina, however, would be the fact that she can’t be there for her children in the way that they needed her as her husband was still quarantined in the basement of their home. 


The mother-of-three finished the post by encouraging her followers to keep sharing their COVID-19 stories as it was the only way for fear to be defeated.

The 50-year-old also added that the real fight was in staying strong. It would be recalled that Chris first shared the news of his wife’s COVID-19 diagnosis on his show, “Cuomo Prime Time.”


The CNN host mentioned that his heart was broken over the occurrence because it was the one thing that he hoped would not happen.

Despite that hurdle, Chris was relieved that his children were yet to contract the virus as he shared that he couldn’t wait to get back on his feet.

According to CNN, during one of the times that he was experiencing fevers, chills, and shortness of breath, he made it known that he hoped that he wouldn’t infect his wife and their three children.

Meanwhile, a large number of CNN employees have resorted to working from home with anchors broadcasting from small studios and home offices, since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
