Chris Cuomo says his initial coronavirus symptoms were very similar to the flu … and now he’s worried about passing the virus a long to his family as they quarantine at home.
The CNN anchor just gave the lowdown on his diagnosis … explaining how he first thought he was dealing with flu-like symptoms — fever, chills, shortness of breath — until he got tested and diagnosed with COVID-19.
Chris’ comments are pretty interesting … as you know, CNN has given President Trump loads of crap for comparing the coronavirus to the flu months ago, before the outbreak reached America.
Sure the symptoms can be similar, but these are still two vastly different health issues … and Chris says it makes it a lot easier for the virus to sneak up on ya. Scary stuff.
It’s pretty alarming … Chris says he’s terrified his wife and children could become infected, because their all living under the same roof.
Chris is a trooper, so he’s still anchoring his CNN show from his basement as long as he feels up to it … and we gotta say, his work-from-home setup is pretty baller. Not a bad basement to be stuck in for a few weeks.
While Chris remains confident he can beat this thing, he explains why everyone needs to feel a sense of urgency right now.
