CNN's Chris Cuomo revealed this week that he has tested positive for the coronavirus, but he's continuing to anchor his 9pm ET show from his basement.

"There is no superhero who is immune to this disease", the governor said.

Mr. Cuomo, broadcasting from his basement, told viewers that he wished he had gotten the virus sooner so he could have pushed back even harder against the Trump administration's initial handling of the virus. Though he said he was well, he explained a bit about what he's been experiencing. Gupta noted he was relieved to hear Cuomo was no longer experiencing tightness in the chest.

Chris Cuomo stated the following. It was freaky what I lived through last night. "As we know, healthcare workers have taken to calling the virus" the beast ". "So I've had a fever, you've had a fever, right?" The nights are hard.


The CNN anchor ended his show Wednesday night describing the horrors he's experienced from contracting COVID-19. and he says he now gets why hospitals are being flooded with scared patients. "And we talked about it and in some ways this can be very instructive to many people, because everyone wants to know what happens if you get coronavirus..." They get over it. It is not humanly responsible, however, from an ethical point of view.

Older sibling Andrew has said that he was "frightened" by his kid brother's diagnosis - while Chris relayed that the governor had come to him in a dream that was, at least to him, comforting.

"I've had a fever, you've had a fever, but 102, 103, 103-plus, that wouldn't quit, and it was like somebody was beating me like a piñata", he continued.

"My dad was talking to me", Cuomo said. "I'm just sweating and it's the disease", he said. So I often go to his workplace, and I say, you recognize, what's doin'. I'm not looking to scare people. I am trying to do the opposite.


Cuomo said he has lost 13 pounds in the past three days.

Chris Cuomo plans to continue hosting his 9 p.m. show as often as he can to offer a public face in the evolving fight against COVID-19.

Still, he encourages people not to disappoint his guards and called on the nation to remain vigilant and follow the recommendations and guidelines set by officials to help reduce risk and hopefully contain Coronavirus once and for all. I've become a part of this group of people who have this virus, and they've been reaching out, it's like a community.
