Turns out the NIH director and the Cuomo Prime Time host have been friends since Cuomo was "almost a kid." "I have spoken to you, almost without exception, every day,” said Cuomo on his Monday show. “And you have been calling me out of personal concern to make sure that I was ok, my wife was ok, my son was ok. Eleven O’Clock at night. Later. Waiting for my show to end. Saturday. Sunday…” Fauci told Cuomo: "I don’t think that people were really experiencing or realizing how you were really sucking it up to look relatively normal. But when you finished the show, when we started chatting at 11, 11:30 at night, you were wiped out. You not only had the acute difficulty with the virus that was replicating in you, but you had some of the secondary effects…the fever, the aches, the feeling washed out."
