Cuomo said on his CNN show Monday night that "I feel better than I deserve." He added: "I was not going to do the show tonight. I was done. I was in a pool of sweat." But a "friend of a friend" doctor challenged him to do the show to "fight" the virus. "You’ve got to do things to beat this virus. You’ve got to breathe deep when it hurts, and I know it hurts," he said, adding: "I’m not trying to minimize anybody’s pain."
