Chris Cuomo has battled coronavirus. His wife Cristina is still battling Coronavirus. And now his son Mario is just beginning his battle.

“The virus worked through the family,” Chris Cuomo shared on his nightly CNN show Cuomo Prime Time on Wednesday (April 23.). “It was me and Cristina, and now Mario has the same symptoms she had, and he’s got the Coronavirus. It’s working its way through, but they’re doing fine.”

The comments came as Cuomo was discussing the constantly evolving situation with the coronavirus with his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

“Thank you for your concern, Andrew,” Chris said, according to E! Online. “Thanks for caring about my family, and about me, and thank you for fighting for the people of your state.”

“He’s going to be OK,” Andrew said reassuringly.

The heartfelt conversation came just hours after Chris’ wife Cristina headed to her Instagram page to share the news of her teenage son’s diagnosis.

“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,” Cristina wrote in part about the current health situation in their family at the moment. “My heart hurts more than my head over his infection. 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 including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all.”

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 including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all. 🙏 Link in bio, as they say.
