Chris Cuomo of CNN Comes out of Quarantine and Reunites with Wife Cristina & Kids
On a recent episode of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time,” the show’s host was finally able to come out of self-quarantine after catching COVID-19. Chris Cuomo shared a video of the exact moment.
On Monday, April 20, 2020, Cuomo, 49, aired an episode of “Cuomo Prime Time” where he was finally cleared to leave quarantine. He got his daughter, Bella, 17, to record the moment he stepped out of self-quarantine from the basement of his home.
The journalist has been staying in the basement for nearly three weeks as he self-isolated after contracting the novel coronavirus disease. In the clip, Cuomo still took some precautions with his family by greeting them with elbow-bumps.

“This is the dream”
"This is the dream. Just to be back up here doing normal things."
Long recovery for Chris
Later on, he also shared: "This is a day I have dreamed about literally for weeks." He might be out of quarantine but his recovery, mental and physical, might take some time, according to the journalist.

Before his exit from quarantine, Cuomo had revealed that less than a week after his wife tested positive for the novel coronavirus disease, she’d already been cleared to leave quarantine. Speaking on his show he said Cristina "has once again proven that she is the stronger part of the couple."

The newsman has taken us on his road to recovery from the time he found out he had the virus. At the beginning of April, the star shared the X-rays he’d taken of his lungs.
He was joined on the episode by fellow CNN journalist Dr. Sanjay Gupta who asked him how he felt. Cuomo revealed at the time that he felt “better than I deserve."
Cristina contracted the virus
Last week, Cristina shared how she was coping with having the virus. The Purist founder shared how her first symptoms of the virus only began on day 18 of her husband’s illness.

She admitted how she’d felt “highly congested, had a terrible sinus headache, and I just thought, 'You know what, I'm so rundown.” Cristina hadn’t been getting enough sleep running the whole household on her own, plus her business.
It appears the worst has now passed for the Cuomo family.
