Chris Cuomo is sharing more about his and his wife Cristina's battles with COVID-19, and how their children are now in charge of the house.

Chris appeared alongside fellow CNN anchors Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta ahead of the network's weekly Coronavirus Town Hall Special, and he opened up some more about his wife's recent diagnosis.

"This was tough, for Cristina to get it" Chris shared with his colleagues, adding that it's "frustrating" to not have any answers or real solutions, and that they "have a lot of fear and not a lot of facts."

Because of the lack of information on COVID-19, Chris revealed and he and Cristina are self-isolating separately, out of an abundance of caution to prevent him from possibly getting "reinfected."

"My wife and I have to be separated for another two weeks, which means our house is dependent on a 17 year old, my daughter Bella, who’s stepping up," Chris said. "But you may hear them because this is now Lord of the Flies. The kids are in control."

The pair share three kids -- 17-year-old daughter Bella, 14-year-old son Mario, and 11-year-old daughter Carolina -- and both parents have been effusive in their praise toward how their kids have handled this situation.

With regards to his wife's condition, Chris said they've had very different experiences with the illness, thus far.

"We have completely different symptoms, thank God," Chris shared. "She’s stronger than I am. She's got a stronger immune system, a stronger constitution and a stronger character."
