Cuomo’s wife Cristina and her 14-year-old son also fought the virus.
“I tested negative. I have both antibodies: the short-term and the long-term. So I’m lucky, right? Or not?” Cuomo considered. “We don’t know what the antibodies mean when they mean something.”
To get some answers, he invited Dr. Sanjay Gupta on the show to explain what is known about antibodies and COVID-19 immunity.
“You will probably have some protection against it. I think most virologists will say that, your friend, Dr. Anthony Fauci, says that too,” said Dr. Gupta with. “The thing is, we have to prove it and it takes some time to actually show that these antibodies will actually protect you.”
Dr. Gupta explained that Cuomo’s antibodies “put part of the virus in a test tube and they basically see if your antibodies neutralize the virus”.
“Presumably there should be neutralizing activity, but it can vary from person to person,” he noted.
Dr. Gupta added, “There has been some evidence lately” suggesting that a person’s antibody levels may correlate with the severity of their illness.
“People with a more serious condition may have antibodies with neutralizing activity,” he continued. “But we have to prove it again.”

Dr. Gupta admitted that further testing needs to be done, but that “the lack of evidence is not evidence of the lack”. He also said it was not known how long someone could be protected against the virus if antibodies offered some immunity.
Cuomo, who was quarantined in the basement, met his family for the first time in three weeks on April 20.
“We’re still making it slow. We don’t hug and kiss and all that stuff,” said Cuomo last week. “But the kids, back in the picture. We find out our family gesture. We could do that [makes hand gesture], or something similar. A little kiss on the air. But that’s what I dreamed of for weeks. “
Cuomo’s wife also contracted the virus, but her symptoms were less severe and she isolated for a week. Cristina announced on Wednesday that her son Mario was ill and could neither taste nor smell.
