Coronavirus is infecting families upon families, and the Cuomos are now part of the list too. It’s been two weeks since CNN anchor Chris Cuomo announced he got infected with COVID-19. But the family’s troubles are far from over. He revealed that his wife, Cristina Cuomo, also tested positive for Coronavirus.
Chris Cuomo opens up in his show on CNN
On his show Cuomo Prime Time on Wednesday night, Chris Cuomo revealed the heartbreaking news about his wife:
Cristina (Cuomo) now has COVID. She is now positive. And it just breaks my heart. It’s the one thing I was hoping wouldn’t happen. And now it has.
He revealed this news while he was talking to his brother, Andrew Cuomo on the show, who is the governor of New York State. And it’s no big news that he is chin-deep in the fight against Coronavirus. Despite that, he still spared a moment for his brother and his wife Cristina Cuomo. He told Chris Cuomo how difficult it is to quarantine at home, and it was inevitable that his wife got infected.
However, Chris Cuomo reassured everyone that only his wife Cristina has tested positive for now and that the kids are safe. He later tweeted that
Kids are still healthy but this shook us at our literal core. All are stepping up. Can’t wait to shake this fever so I can help her as she helped me.
Families all over know the reality our family faces: few are one case and done. Sure enough, Cristina has covid now. Kids are still healthy but this shook us at our literal core. All are stepping up. Can't wait to shake this fever so I can help her as she helped me. Sucks. pic.twitter.com/ncyoQ3saWc

And this news is especially damning for Chris Cuomo, who tweeted concerns for his wife and kids a few weeks ago:
I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!
COVID-19 shows no signs of stopping
By the looks of it, it seems unlikely that Coronavirus will stop at Cristina Cuomo. Cases are sky-rocketing in New York, which is the hub of the disease right now in the world. So much so, that New York alone has more cases than any other country in the world. Right now, New York has more than 220,000 confirmed cases, with 14,000 dead. Things are so bad that mass graves are being dug to ease the burden on morgues. We wish Chris Cuomo and his wife a speedy recovery.
