Andrew's younger brother, CNN journalist Chris Cuomo, recently recovered from coronavirus after a difficult battle with the disease. Chris' wife, Cristina, and son, Mario, also contracted the virus, but have since recovered.
Though Andrew and Chris have traded playful barbs on Cuomo Prime Time over the last couple of months, they've been incredibly supportive of each other's efforts to raise awareness about coronavirus. Last Wednesday's episode saw Chris praise Andrew for his handling of the pandemic.
"Governor Andrew Cuomo, you're dealing with very important things. I know that you don't take yourself seriously but you take the job very seriously. That's what the situation demands," Chris said. "I love you. Thank you for coming on the show."
"I love you, brother," Andrew replied with a smile.
