Chris Cuomo shared a new video on Instagram amid his ongoing battle with the coronavirus. He recorded a clip title “Passover in the age of another plague,” and it drew many reactions both positive and negative in the comments, but one of them crossed the line.
“Praying this plague takes you out,” the troll wrote. But Cuomo wasn’t having it. “Prepare for disappointment, punk,” he shot back.
Many of the other comments were sending Cuomo well wishes.
“Loved seeing you laughing again and doing sooooo much better. I also loved how you and Andrew were joking with each other. So great to see you interview him, both very handsome guys. Much love to the both of you, keep fighting Chris, you’re doing so well,” one said.
“You looking so much better, continued prayers your way!” another wrote.
“You are a true Mensch, thanks for all you do. You inspire us to be better,” a third replied.
Last week, he talked about his recovery on CNN. “I feel better than I deserve and I now know that I can’t just take it from this thing,” Cuomo said. “When the fever spikes you just want to curl up in a ball and stay there for the next six, seven hours and you can’t. You’ve got to bundle up your clothes, you’ve got to start drowning yourself in fluid.”
“In these difficult times that seem to get more difficult and complicated by the day, I just found out that I am positive for coronavirus,” Cuomo wrote on social media when he announced his positive test. “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath. I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and [wife] Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
Heath officials are urging people to remain in their homes as much as possible and avoid all social gatherings. Additionally, the CDC has issued some tips for helping to avoid contracting the disease.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
Stay home when you are sick.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help prevent the spread of the disease to others. The use of facemasks is also crucial for health workers and people who are taking care of someone in close settings (at home or in a health care facility).
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
