‘Wus’ Chris Cuomo Says His Next Coronavirus Step Will Likely Make Him Faint
CNN’s Chris Cuomo is officially over his coronavirus infection ― and now he’s hoping to help others with COVID-19.
But he’s not exactly looking forward to the next step.
Cuomo said he was tested and found to have antibodies for the new coronavirus.
And though he still has questions about how much protection he has against infection, he plans to donate some of his blood.
The antibody-rich blood, or convalescent plasma, is being given to people who are sick to help them fight the infection.
“I have never given blood in my life, and we both know why,” he said to CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “It’s because I’m a wus.”
And that, he said, could complicate the process just a little.
“The likelihood I faint is like 110%,” he said. “If they want the blood, I’m going to give it to them, because that is the best thing I’ve heard of so far in terms of what I can do to help as someone who was sick.”
