“I’m feeling pretty good today,” Cristina Cuomo told Entertainment Tonight on Friday.
Cuomo tested positive for the disease 18 days after her husband learned that he had contracted it. The husband and wife both said that they were feeling better and that neither of them had demonstrated the need for hospitalization.
“I was very congested, I had terrible headaches in my sinuses and I just thought, ‘You know what, I’m so run down. I am not getting enough sleep, I am feeling a lot of stress looking after and managing the children and my own business that he has just caught up with me, “she said.
She started experiencing symptoms after being quarantined for 14 days and initially thought she was sick with something other than the coronavirus. She said she is treating the disease, which has not yet received approved treatment, with natural remedies.
“I thought, ‘I’m free at home, there’s no way it’s corona,'” she said. “The next morning, I woke up without smell or taste – and I have a very strong smell, so for me not to feel, you know, I felt like the world was collapsing around me. “
Chris Cuomo shared more details on Thursday with how he and his wife are doing, saying he feels “better than I deserve.”
“She is stronger than me. She has a stronger immune system, a stronger constitution and character, ”said Cuomo.

Chris Cuomo said that he and his wife experienced symptoms of the virus very differently. He also noted that, both of them being sick, they rely on their three children to take care of household chores.
“She lost her sense of smell and taste, but no fever. She had a lot of sinus pressure in her head, a little lethargy, “said Cuomo. “And a little bit of residual frustration for me, because I’m almost certainly sure how she got sick.” “
