Chris Cuomo, who announced last month that he had tested positive for COVID-19, said Wednesday night that his wife, Cristina Greeven Cuomo, has also tested positive.

During an interview with his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the CNN anchor said, “Cristina now has COVID. 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.”

The CNN host has been very public about his battle with COVID-19. Last week, he said his symptoms were so bad that at one point he was so ill he thought about skipping his show. Cuomo said those symptoms included sweating, difficulty breathing, inability to sleep and more.

“So, here’s what I’ve learned. Here’s the secret to kicking this virus: It’s not a pill or a potion. It’s about your will and devotion. The virus wants us to lay down. The virus wants us to take it,” Cuomo said at the time time. “Other than the blessed few, the rest of us who get this are going to have an experience unlike anything else they’ve ever had, days and waves.”

Cuomo has been broadcasting his CNN show from his basement since his diagnosis.
