Trump, wife Melania test positive: “We’ll get through this together”


PTI, Oct 2, 2020, 10:55 AM IST

 

Washington: US President Donald Trump said early Friday he and First Lady Melania had tested positive for the coronavirus. “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19.

We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!,” Trump tweeted.

Trump and the First Lady will quarantine “within the White House”, the White House doctor said.

The White House has removed the Florida campaign trip from Trump’s schedule.

Trump said late Thursday he would go into quarantine after a top aide tested positive for coronavirus, in a shock development that threatened to disrupt his scheduled public appearances in the crucial final weeks of the election campaign.

He confirmed in an interview with Fox News that Hope Hicks, one of his closest confidantes, had tested positive and added later on Twitter that he and First Lady Melania Trump were awaiting their own test results.

Trump did not say how long he was planning to be in isolation — he is regularly tested for the potentially deadly virus but the tests can yield false negative results.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people stay home and isolate for up to 14 days if they might have been exposed to the virus.

Hicks was traveling with Trump on Air Force One just this Tuesday to fly to Cleveland for the first presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden.
