Chris Cuomo shared photographic evidence of the effects of the coronavirus on his body after undergoing chest x-rays for fear of developing pneumonia.
The CNN host gave an overview of the x-rays in Monday night’s episode of “Cuomo Prime Time” and thought about what it was like to see them even after receiving the good news that he had no pneumonia, which is one of the most dangerous side effects of the disease.
“I have to tell you, it’s scary to have your lungs up there and see that stuff and say,” What is it? What is this smoke in there? “And they tell you it’s the virus,” said Cuomo. “You have to fight not to go. I’m fine. I don’t have pneumonia. But if I want to stay that way, I have to have certain things in my favor. “

Cuomo’s guest, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, said the x-rays showed nothing particularly alarming.
“It looks pretty good,” said Gupta. “Maybe a little fluid, but not something I would definitely call pneumonia. “
Cuomo, 49, regularly shares his experiences since he revealed last week that he had been diagnosed with COVID-19.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s younger brother lost 13 pounds in three days at one point, chipped a tooth because he was shaking so badly from coronavirus symptoms and had a hallucination from his late father , former New York Governor Mario Cuomo, who died five years ago.
He said Monday evening that although his fever started to go down over the weekend, he could feel the disease entering his chest. He stressed that getting up and moving around is crucial.
“I know now that I can’t just bear it with this thing,” he said. “When the fever goes up, you just want to curl up in a ball and stay there for the next 6-7 hours, and you can’t.” You have to bundle up your clothes, you have to start drowning in liquids, you have to take Tylenol and you have to take care of it.
“If you don’t want it to get into your lungs, you have to force yourself to breathe. You have to get up from the ass, you have to walk. It hurts, you don’t want to do it, everything in your body tells you not to do it. He’s lying to you, and I know it now, and the more I do, the more I push myself to do, the better I am, so I ‘I’ll believe it for now. ”
