Speaking on his eponymous show, Cuomo Prime Time, the CNN anchor said:

People who’ve been through this have strange tales to tell and not a lot of great answers from doctors to weird stuff in their blood work. I’m one of them. I still have weird stuff going on with my lungs. I’m not back to where I was before I had the virus, but I can work. I can hang out. I can engage with my family. I’m going to be able to do plasma donations, which I want to do with you, together, to show the audience how it works if people are able to do that. But, I’m not 100 percent and there’s funky stuff in my blood work that doctors say is what they see in people who’ve had COVID, so freaks me out a little bit.”

Cuomo finds comfort in the fact that he isn’t the only one experiencing such residual side effects.

Commiserate is a word for a reason and people like to suffer together, so as long as there are other people who have the same kind of funky blood work, I’ll just keep taking it one day at a time.”
