Chris Cuomo, a CNN host and virulent critic of President Donald Trump, announced his wife has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Cuomo has been in quarantine since he tested positive for the virus earlier in April. At the time, he stated “I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
“Cristina now has COVID,” Cuomo said in his recent statement. “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.”
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

Cuomo continued: “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.”
While in quarantine, Cuomo has been attacking the president’s leadership even referring to Trump’s comments as “asinine” when the president said he wanted to be “cheerleader” for America.
Cuomo was called out for complaining about the president’s comments when he used a doctored video of Trump that some called misleading.
