Soon after US President Donald Trump tests negative for Coronavirus, his 14-year-old son Barron contracted the deadly virus but has since tested negative, First Lady Melania Trump revealed.
In a blog posted on the White House website, Melania said that Barron exhibited no symptoms, a departure from herself and the president, who have both said they experienced mild symptoms.
Both the president and first lady also tested positive for coronavirus – as well as other White House staff – but have since recovered.
Trump announced that he and the First Lady had tested positive in the early-morning hours on October 1. However, both have now recovered from the disease.
“My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive. Luckily, he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms. In one way I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together. He has since tested negative,” Melania said on Wednesday.
The First Lady encouraged everyone to continue to live the healthiest life they can. A balanced diet, fresh air, and vitamins really are vital to keep our bodies healthy, she said.
“For your complete well-being, compassion and humility are just as important in keeping our minds strong. For me personally, the most impactful part of my recovery was the opportunity to reflect on many things, family, friendships, my work, and staying true to who you are,” she wrote.
Furthermore, the United States (US) has recorded more than 7.8 million coronavirus cases and 216,000 deaths.
