Chris Cuomo says he’s not fully recovered from his bout with coronavirus, which “freaks me out a little bit.”
The CNN anchor gave an update on his recovery Tuesday night on his CNN show, “Cuomo Prime Time.”
“People who’ve been through this have strange tales to tell and not a lot of great answers from doctors to weird stuff in their blood work,” Cuomo said. “I’m one of them. I still have weird stuff going on with my lungs. I’m not back to where I was before I had the virus but I can work. I can hang out. I can engage with my family.”
Cuomo, the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said he plans to donate his plasma to help others infected with COVID-19.
“But I’m not 100 percent,” he continued. “There is funky stuff in my blood work, that doctors say is what they see in people who had COVID. So it freaks me out a little bit.”
Cuomo, 49, announced in late March that he’d been diagnosed with coronavirus with symptoms so severe, he chipped a tooth from shivering, suffered from hallucinations and dropped 13 pounds.
His wife Cristina and their 14-year-old son Mario also battled the disease.
Cuomo has since tested negative for coronavirus and positive for antibodies.
