Cuomo noted that he's "not looking to scare people" by discussing his symptoms, instead, he's "trying to do the opposite" by giving a truthful explanation as to what the virus can cause.

Cuomo explained exactly how he might feel his temperature level surge also as he was preparing to broadcast, as well as claimed he had actually shed 13 extra pounds in 2 days, primarily with sweat. I started off at 230 pounds.

The television personality, and brother to New York Gov. "I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath", he said.

Still, he encourages people not to let down their guards and asked the nation to continue being vigilant and following the recommendations and guidelines set forth by officials to help reduce the risk and hopefully contain Coronavirus once and for all. Fake pills, fake tonics.

The disease kept him up all night, he said, detailing a restless stupor in which he was haunted by the memory of his father, former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, as well as other people he "hadn't seen in forever".

A total of 244,826 have been infected in the USA , while the death toll in the country rises to 6,059. While PAPRs are different from N95 face masks, they are still vital in the fight against coronavirus.


"This is the part of our lives we will live through and remember the most, how do you want to be remembered during this time?" he stressed.

He went on to say his fever is still "probably around 101".

Cuomo, who tested positive for the illness on Tuesday, gave an update on his condition during a CNN "Global Town Hall" - which aired during his show's normal 9 p.m. time slot. "I've never experienced any kind of fever like what I have going on all the time, the body aches, the tremors, the concern about not being able to do anything about it, I totally get why so many are so scared all over this country". I was shivering so much that. "They call them the rigors".

"So the sun comes up, I'm awake - I was up all night". I've talked to several experts and clinicians in this and they all said it's a very common thing. And it may happen again tonight.

"When I have a few good hours, I always try to help with state supplies [of New York] because they're really fighting state by state, which is so stupid, to get the equipment they need, "said Cuomo". If you match that with chest constriction when people can't breath.
