Donald Trump and the first lady test positive for Coronavirus

American president Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for Coronavirus. They will now start a quarantine period.

At 74-years-old, Trump is considered to be at high-risk for Coronavirus.

Trump broke the news via his Twitter page to his 86 million followers.

One of his closest advisers, Hope Hicks, tested positive for Coronavirus recently. And she travelled with him on Air Force One for the first of the presidential TV debates on Tuesday.

It was notable that many of Trump’s family members weren’t wearing masks at the debate.

Trump himself has often refused to wear a mask and not socially distanced with aides or during official presidential work.

Mr Trump’s Doctor released a statement confirming saying they were “both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence”.

It’s a huge moment for American politics with the national elections just over a month away and with Trump falling well behind Democratic challenger Biden in all the major polls.

The coronavirus has infected more than 7.2 million Americans, killing more than 200,000 of them.
