The CNN host, who contracted the deadly virus a month ago, is doing well and shaking it off with his daughter.
Right now, we need all the laughs we can get. Whether it's from the memes about the pandemic... Or CNN host Chris Cuomo shaking his booty in a TikTok video with his daughter. The last we heard of Cuomo, he had tested positive for the deadly Coronavirus. Thanks to daughter Bella Cuomo's clip on TikTok, we now know he's doing much better. We also know that he's got some killer dad - we mean dance - moves! Since it was first posted six days ago, the hilarious video has gone viral, garnering well over 720,000 views and 82,000 likes on TikTok alone.
In the video, the daughter is seen dancing to a mash-up of Megan Thee Stallion‘s 'Savage,' Rihanna’s 'What’s My Name,' and Kesha‘s 'Cannibal.' It looks like she choreographed the whole dance sequence too. While things were going pretty well, everything became a whole lot funnier when her dad snuck into the frame. At first, he has his back to the camera and shakes his moneymaker before showing off some moves of his own. Meanwhile, all Bella can do is continue her dance sequence with as much nonchalance as possible. She posted the video with the following caption: "When in doubt... Dance party." We could all probably benefit from a dance party of our own, to be honest.
Apart from Bella, Cuomo has two other children with his wife Cristina. He's got his son Mario, who is 14 years old, and younger daughter Carolina, who is 11 years old. Over the past few weeks, the Cuomo family has been incredibly open about their own experiences with the novel Coronavirus. So far, three out of five of the Cuomos have contracted the illness. Two weeks after Cuomo himself revealed that he had been infected on March 31, his wife announced that she too had contracted the disease. Their son Mario followed about a week later. On April 27, almost a month after the reveal, the CNN host - and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's brother - shared that he had finally tested negative.
This does not necessarily mean that he will not get reinfected if exposed once again to the potentially fatal virus. "I tested negative. I have both antibodies: The short-term one and the long-term one. So I’m lucky, right?" He explained on his show Cuomo Prime Time. "Is this good news or not? I thought I was going to have this big, great news after all the bad news I’ve given you about me and my family. What does it mean that I have the antibodies? Am I really immune? Do they know? There’s a lot of confusion about what it does and doesn’t mean." The Cuomos live in New York, one of the worst-hit states in America.
As of early Tuesday morning, New York's Coronavirus death toll stood at 21,640. There are also just about 337,000 confirmed cases of the deadly virus. While the state battles the greatest public health crisis it has witnessed in the recent past, we're just glad to know that Cuomo is better - and has some killer dance moves. Like Bella said, when in doubt, shake it out!
