The kids are in control.”The couple share daughters Bella, 17, and Carolina, 11, and son Mario, 14.I’m doing “better than I deserve” but “this was tough for Cristina to get it,” says @chriscuomo, sharing an update on his family after both he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus #CNNTownHallhttps://t.co/cHHHqOOPRnpic.twitter.com/zmPARSekuz— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) April 17, 2020Cristina also provided an update on her health, taking to Instagram Thursday to share more details.”A seemingly sinus-related infection was my first symptom,” Cristina wrote in the caption. “But the only frustrating part is I can’t be there for my kids right now in the way they need me as Chris is in isolation too still, no fever and feeling better.””(Bella) stepped up cleaning, doing laundry, cooking for her siblings and getting them situated with google classroom, and caregiving her mother and father,” Cristina said, adding their son Mario is serving as Bella’s assistant.She said she is “committed to this naturopathic route more than ever” in her fight against coronavirus and that she wants to “support the immune system, not suppress it.””Pooling anecdotal evidence and sharing methods for recovery are important.

She is now positive, and it just breaks my heart. It is the one thing I was hoping wouldn’t happen, and now it has.”‘It just breaks my heart’: CNN’s Chris Cuomo confirms his wife also has coronavirusDuring a press conference Thursday, the governor added that Cristina became infected because she was taking care of his brother. “He’s sick in the basement, Cristina’s quarantined upstairs,” Cuomo said. “It’s a practical hardship, but he’s feeling better.”On March 31, Cuomo announced he had tested positive for COVID-19. Since then, the anchor has kept viewers updated in broadcasts from isolation, detailing his latest symptoms, which at times included hallucinations, profuse sweating, headaches, pains in his face and weight loss.”When the fever spikes you just want to curl up in a ball and stay there for the next six, seven hours and you can’t. You’ve got to bundle up your clothes, you’ve got to start drowning yourself in fluid,” Cuomo said on air last week.He said he had begun to feel symptoms a few days before officially testing positive and knew “as an essential worker” that he needed to be tested, “because I was in the mix.”‘I’m worried’: Gov.
