Chris Cuomo Says Coronavirus Fever Was So Bad He Chipped a Tooth & Hallucinated Seeing Deceased Father

Chris Cuomo is detailing his coronavirus battle.

While broadcasting from his basement as he self-quarantines at home, the 49-year-old CNN anchor said he was shaking so severely that he ended up chipping a tooth.

“I’ve never had anything like it,” Chris said on-air on Wednesday (April 1) as he detailed his symptoms from the night before. “I’ve had a fever, you’ve had a fever. But 102, 103, 103 plus… that wouldn’t quit. And it was like somebody was beating me like a pinata. I shivered so much that… I chipped my tooth.”

“I never experienced any kind of fever like what I have going on all the time, and the body aches, and the tremors and the concern about not being able to do anything about it,” Chris continued.

From the high fever, Chris said that started hallucinating, saying he was talking to his father Mario Cuomo, who died in 2015.

“I was up all night, I’m telling you, I was hallucinating,” Chris continued. “My dad was talking to me. I was seeing people from college, people I hadn’t seen in forever. It was freaky, what I went through last night. And it may happen again tonight.”

Despite the symptoms, Chris said that he’s just grateful wife Christina and their three kids have so far tested negative, and he plans on maintaining a strict quarantine until he fully recovers.

“My biggest fear was passing this on to Cristina and the kids,” Chris said. “Even though I feel way worse than I did yesterday in terms of symptoms, it’s been a great day. They’re [tested] negative and that is the best thing I’ve ever heard.”
