A third member of Chris Cuomo’s family has come down with the coronavirus.
Three weeks ago, the CNN anchor announced he had the virus and, last week, his wife, Cristina, got it.
Now, their teenage son Mario is ill.
Cristina Cuomo announced the news on Instagram ; her husband spoke about it on the air.

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.
"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," Cristina said in the post. "My heart hurts more than my head over his infection."
Both mom and dad say the son has relatively mild symptoms and they expect him to be OK.
Most who get the coronavirus have relatively mild symptoms. But COVID-19 has also caused serious breathing problems — and has killed tens of thousands in the U.S.
