On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, show kindness toward our planet and every creature who inhabits it, as the transcendent photographer, adventurer, preservationist and raconteur Peter Beard advised us. My old friend’s recent death offers an eerily timely punctuation on this virus and a reminder that we can’t forget to protect one another, and the animals that roam the Earth. This virus has created a different version of me. My hope is to be stronger, healthier, smarter about the virus at large. After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one-day and terrible the next, I am now working hard to get my son, Mario, through the virus. My heart hurts more than my head over his infection. This virus does not discriminate. While kids are more resilient, they can suffer same severity of symptoms. I’m applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can’t get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all. Link in bio, as they say.

"After 10 days of ups and downs, feeling good one day and terrible the next, I am now working hard to get my son, Mario, through the virus," Cristina wrote. "My heart hurts more than my head over his infection."

"I'm applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins," the 50-year-old magazine editor continued. "Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can't get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all."

Chris Cuomo publicly ended his quarantine on Monday night, telling viewers on his prime-time program the moment was "what I've been dreaming of literally for weeks." He said he'd been cleared by the CDC.

Chris Cuomo also announced Monday night that Christina Cuomo was also out of quarantine.

"She's out of quarantine, and she dealt with it in a fraction of the time," the anchor said. "So we are among the blessed."

The Cuomos have two other children, Bella, 17 and Carolina, 10.
