As you've probably heard, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo unfortunately has tested positive for the deadly virus spreading throughout the globe.
Cuomo's older brother, Governor Andrew Cuomo of NY, has made a name for himself throughout the pandemic as he calmly and deliberately has walked New Yorkers through his handling of the crisis.
He has also provided some much needed levity by ribbing his younger bro, even featuring him recently during one of his press briefings.
Reflecting upon how his illness has affected him, Chris Cuomo told the tale of a fever dream he had one night. And it was...a lot.
"It was like out of a movie. I had the hallucination that I was seeing Pop. You had on a very interesting valet out… https://t.co/XD1FwuQySw— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar)1585844201.0
"I had hallucinations. You came to me in a dream, you had on a very interesting ballet outfit, and you were dancing in the dream, and you were waving a wand and saying, 'I wish I could wave my wand and make this go away,' and then you spun around and you danced away."
People were here for it.

"Well, that's a lot of metaphoric reality in that one. I thank you for sharing that with us," responded the elder Cuomo.

The Cuomo brothers' banter was a much-needed light note during an otherwise serious update.

@atrupar This is one of the greatest TV moments Thank you Cuomo family. Get well little bro— Lenny Chesal (@Lenny Chesal)1585845277.0
The good news is, nobody else in Chris Cuomo's family has shown any symptoms of the virus. He's living in the basement of his house with his wife bringing him food until his symptoms resolve, and he seems to be doing okay.
"If your wife had any symptoms, you'd be in the basement for a lot longer than this virus would keep you in the basement," said Andrew.
"The dogs won't even come down the stairs," said Chris.
So it sounds like neither brother will be losing their sense of humor any time soon.
