According to ET Online, Cristina made the revelation about Mario's health in an Instagram update about her own battle with COVID-19. Along with a series of family pictures that included the 14-year-old, the mother-of-three wrote:

"After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one-day and terrible the next, I am now working hard to get my son, Mario, through the virus."

On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, show kindness toward our planet and every creature who inhabits it, as the transcendent photographer, adventurer, preservationist and raconteur Peter Beard advised us. My old friend’s recent death offers an eerily timely punctuation on this virus and a reminder that we can’t forget to protect one another, and the animals that roam the Earth. 🌏🌏🌏 This virus has created a different version of me. My hope is to be stronger, healthier, smarter about the virus at large. 💙💙💙After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one-day and terrible the next, I am now working toward getting my son, Mario, through the virus. My heart hurts more than my head over his infection. This virus does not discriminate. While kids are more resilient, they can suffer same severity of symptoms. I’m applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can’t get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week of my road to recovery. 🙏 Link in bio, as they say.

A post shared by Cristina Cuomo (@cristinacuomo) on

E! Online noted that Cristina claimed that while the virus didn't discriminate against anybody, children were likely to suffer the same severe symptoms that adults did.

[Chris Cuomo] then pointed out that Cristina had also received the green light from CDC to come out of quarantine after she also fought COVID-19 for some weeks.

With that in mind, the 50-year-old stated that Mario's sense of smell and taste has disappeared, which prompted her to feed him healthy foods that he normally wouldn't touch.

Her fans made no hesitation in letting her know that they were praying for her family while also sending her "love and positive vibes." 

Cristina's post comes less than a week after E! Online reported that Chris was a free man following his release from the basement where he spent several weeks fighting COVID-19.

Cuomo, who continued hosting his nightly CNN show during the duration of his illness, recorded the moment he reunited with his family in a clip that he shared with his Instagram family.

After stating that he had been given the all-clear from the Centre of Disease Control, the CNN anchor could be heard adding:

"The official reentry from the basement. This is what I've been dreaming of. Literally for weeks."

The 49-year-old then pointed out that Cristina had also received the green light from CDC to come out of quarantine after she also fought COVID-19 for some weeks.

When he eventually got to where his wife and their three kids, including Bella and Carolina, were, he cautiously gave them the shaka sign.
