Watch: Chris Cuomo Gives Update on 14-Year-Old Son's Coronavirus Recovery

Chris Cuomo is speaking out about his son's battle with Coronavirus.

It's been one month since the CNN anchor shared that he had tested positive for the virus, and now Chris is giving an update on his family's health. Earlier this month, Chris announced that his wife, Cristina Cuomo, had tested positive for Coronavirus. Then on Wednesday, while sharing an update on her health, Cristina revealed that the couple's 14-year-old son Mario is also battling the virus.

"After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one-day and terrible the next, I am now working hard to get my son, Mario, through the virus," Cristina wrote in a message on Instagram. "My heart hurts more than my head over his infection. I'm applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can't get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all."
