Cristina Cuomo Gives ‘Extra’ a Health Update After Being Diagnosed with Coronavirus
Sick with COVID-19, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo is still quarantining in his basement — and now his wife Cristina has tested positive for the virus.
Cuomo revealed on his show “Cuomo Prime Time” on Wednesday night, “Cristina 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.”
Cristina told “Extra's” Billy Bush today via text, “Just coming out of a long hazy day,” revealing, “afternoons are always better when I get my sinus congestion in check. Just praying it doesn't get to my lungs so applying similar vitamins and remedies to myself as I did for Chris, plus adding a few new things to the mix. Can't smell or taste anything and no fever, thank God.”
Earlier in the week, Billy spoke to her on Zoom, where she admitted she was nervous for herself.
She said, “It's sort of like day to day, you wake up and pray you don't have it that day.”
As for how she was protecting herself in the home, Cristina shared, “I stand at the top of the stairs and there's a landing there. I put a food tray down… I have my gloves and mask… He comes to the stairs and we hang out.”
Cristina, who is editor in chief of The Purist, revealed she was helping nurse Chris back to health using techniques she learned from Dr. Linda Lancaster, an energy medicine physician.
“Food is medicine, too, so our whole effort was to build back his immune system… We integrated things his doctors suggested, such as Tylenol and Allegra-D, but most importantly it was the good food and herbs, the oxygenated herbs… and obviously the vitamins were critical for this and necessary right now.”
Two weeks ago, Chris expressed concerns that he would spread the virus to his family. He tweeted, “I just hope I didn't give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!” His kids are okay as of now.
