Just days after CNN anchor Chris Cuomo altercation’s with a N.Y. bicyclist, Dr. Sanjay Gupta told Cuomo on live television he does not meet the bar yet to stop self-isolation.
Per the Hill, a Long Island, N.Y., bicyclist has filed a police report after getting into a testy exchange with CNN anchor Chris Cuomo in front of a Hamptons home on Easter Sunday, according to a New York Post report.
The reported filing with the East Hampton Police Department came after Cuomo shared a story on his SiriusXM radio show on Monday about a “jackass, loser biker” who got in his “space” because he was in the front yard with two women and three children at the home, which is still under construction. The bicyclist told the Post that Cuomo had purchased the property.
The Cuomo family is currently living in nearby Southampton, where the anchor and host has been broadcasting from his basement while under quarantine.
The Long Island bicyclist, a 65-year-old man who only identified himself as David, told the Post he decided to file a police report to document the alleged incident in case he feels “that this guy’s a threat to me.”
The bicyclist told the Post he’s lived in East Hampton for most of his life.
David said the verbal confrontation occurred after he saw Cuomo outside on Sunday.
“I just looked and said, ‘Is that Chris Cuomo? Isn’t he supposed to be quarantined?’” David said after one of the two women there approached him. “I said to him, ‘Your brother is the coronavirus czar, and you’re not even following his rules — unnecessary travel.'”
“‘Who the hell are you?! I can do what I want!’ He just ranted, screaming, ‘I’ll find out who you are!’” Cuomo responded, according to David.
“He said, ‘This is not the end of this. You’ll deal with this later. We will meet again.’ If that’s not a threat, I don’t know what is,” David added.
Yahoo reports CNN’s Chris Cuomo has been battling COVID-19 for more than two weeks now ― and his fight’s not over yet.
Cuomo said on Tuesday night he was getting “cocky” when he reached 60 hours without fever, close to the 72-hour goal for patients suffering from the coronavirus infection.
But then it came back, hitting 101 Tuesday.
“I’m still super lucky, super blessed, compared to so many of the other people I’ve heard about,” he told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “But I’ve got to start again, and that’s just how it goes.”
Gupta described three things doctors look for before coronavirus patients can stop isolation, including being fever-free for 72 hours, and Cuomo is still falling short.
“You’re not there yet,” he lamented.
