Cristina Cuomo, the wife of CNN host Chris Cuomo, has given an update on her husband’s condition since he was diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 29.

Cristina posted the update to Instagram on Monday night, where she told us he was “doing slightly better”.

She said Chris still feels “incredible lethargy,” but his fever has been down for the past three days, his oxygen levels were normal all week and an X-ray of his lungs on Sunday — which he has shared with the public — was clear.

She also gave us an idea of how the CNN host had suffered in the last week and a half when she wrote: “After one week of up and down symptoms — chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever that hit 103, he is on day 11 today.”

Chris Cuomo chipped a tooth from shivering

Cuomo told last week how he chipped a tooth because he was shivering so violently while suffering a fever.

Yesterday, he revealed the X-ray of his lungs, as shown in the video below:

Cristina also posted details of what medicines they have been using to deal with his symptoms along with breathing exercises that have helped him fight back against the virus.

Cristina also posted info on her husband’s diet in the past week. She said that “he has maintained his sense of taste and smell, but not his usual hearty Italian appetite.” The 49-year-old has reportedly lost 13 pounds.

She said she’s been preparing organic food for the governor’s brother, such as chicken soup and other food low in chemicals.

Every day is a gift. ♥️ Many have asked how Chris is doing and what meds he’s taking. Here’s an update: After one week of up and down symptoms—chills, body aches, total exhaustion, sleeplessness, and a fever that hit 103, he is on day 11 today, (day 1 being first day of allergy-like symptoms)—he seems slightly better, but still feels the incredible lethargy, with fever down to 99 for past 3 days. His Oxygen levels (tested daily on a finger Oximeter) were normal all week. He has maintained his sense of taste and smell, but not his usual hearty Italian appetite. His lungs were x-rayed yesterday and they were mostly clear. 💙 Thank you for amazing homemade goodies from friends and the outpouring of love + humor so many of you have provided. They are the oxygen for these biblical times. 🙏 …. CHRIS’ CORONA PROTOCOL—WEEK ONE, began March 30th when positive test came back: …. 🌼 FOR MEDICINE: I enlisted @drlindalancaster @lightharmonics , an Energy Medicine physician, who helped me cure my aggressive Lyme Disease last summer and who treated my mother for breast cancer 20 years ago. Her training is in Ayurveda, medical radiesthesia, radionics, energy healing, nutrition, herbal medicine and detoxification methods. Since this particular virus has no proven remedy, as Lyme does not, she assigned oxygenated herbs, natural remedies and homeopathics to boost Chris' immune system for the battle ahead. …. 🥗 FOR FOOD: The food plan I outlined was meant to cleanse his liver with whole, vital, organic foods so it can manage the viral die-off and provide him with much-needed energy, nutrients, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory properties, like basic chicken soup, and foods low in immune-busting chemicals like pesticides. …. 🌞 FOR BREATHE + MOVEMENT: 30 minutes daily sunshine helps Vitamin D level. He has also been sitting in the @sunlightensaunas daily, which makes him feel better + has helped with his fever. He has been doing breathing (resonance) exercises everyday for his lungs (video in link), as well as walking around the yard 🌸 so he can get fluid flowing out of lungs. 💛 For all the info on CHRIS’ DAILY ANTI VIRALS + MY DIARY OF FOOD—WEEK ONE, see link in bio. #rebirth

Chris is apparently getting 30 minutes of sunshine a day to help with his vitamin D, and he also spends time in a sauna, which has apparently helped his fever and his breathing. He’s been walking around the yard too, to get fluid flowing out of his lungs.

The couple have also enlisted the help of Dr. Linda Lancaster, who specializes in alternative medicine, such as the practice of Ayurveda. Lancaster has been a longtime doctor of Cristina’s, and she helped cure her Lyme disease last year.

Chris Cuomo says ‘your will and devotion’ will beat this virus

Chris himself took to the airways yesterday for an interview with his employers at CNN, where he said the key to beating the virus is “your will and devotion”, adding, “the virus wants us to lay down.”

Chris said that the normal ways of treating illnesses such as “just going to bed” don’t cut it anymore. “Now I’m wise to the beast,” he says “the fever is just softening us up, it makes your body hurt so you don’t want to move.”

He said a pulmonary expert who was a friend of a friend of a friend telephoned him and said that as the virus was in his lungs, he needed to fight back.

Cuomo was instructed to breathe deep, even when it hurts, and to aggressively fight fevers when they spiked. “You have to make that fever go down any way you can,” he told us.

He said it was important for him to keep working and to write about his experiences so he could share them with the public.

The coronavirus has shown that it doesn’t respect borders, boundaries, or anybody, as a number of wealthy celebrities have now been infected from Hollywood actors such as Tom Hanks to Europe’s royal families — Prince Charles was diagnosed two weeks ago. Boris Johnson, the UK Prime Minister, is currently in intensive care in hospital as he battles COVID-19.
