“Sooooo 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 shared on Twitter “I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath.”
“I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and Cristina,” Cuomo said of his wife and children. “That would make me feel worse than this illness!”
After joking that the rest of his family are pleased he will be stuck in the basement, Cuomo offered fans a message of positivity during this trying time.
“We will all beat this by being smart and tough and united!” Cuomo tweeted.
