Trump, Melania test positive for coronavirus

President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have tested positive for coronavirus. They had undergone the test Thursday night after Trump's close aide Hope Hicks tested positive. Hop Hicks had worked in very close physical proximity to Trump this week during electioneering, travelling in plane together several times, and indiscriminately meeting supporters in close quarters.

WASHINGTON, Oct 2: President Donald Trump and the First Lady Melania Trump have coronavirus. They had given the test Thursday night after Trump's close aide Hope Hicks had tested positive and they had gone into quarantine immediately.

Hope Hicks, currently "feeling pretty bad" with symptoms, has been in close physical proximity to the President during the week for the presidential electineering. She had accompanied him in Air Force One to Cleveland on Tuesday for the one-on-one debate with his rival candidate Joe Biden and for an election rally in Minnesota on Wednesday in the Marine One helicopter. She physically meets a wide spectrum of supporters at campaigns without any restraint.

Five people at the White House have so far reported positive for coronavirus, including the President's National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien.

"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 shortly before 1 am (ET) on Friday.

The President's physician, Navy Cmdr. Dr. Sean Conley, said in a memo to reporters, "The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence...Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any further developments."

Trump was last seen in public Thursday afternoon when he returned from New Jersey after a campaign trip.

Obese (110.2 kg) and old at 74, he is in the worst vulnerable category to get infected. A rare thing to happen in American history. From day one he has been underestimating the dangers from coronavirus and the threat it posed, not only to himself when he flouted experts' advice on appropriate behaviour, but putting at risk the life of his countrymen too as their President. Corona has taken a global toll of one million lives, 200,000 of them Americans.

Whatever has happened, happened, but he has put the administration in jeopardy. And for him, he cannot campaign for 14 days as he will be in quarantine, because incubation period for coronavirus can take up to two weeks. The physical voting for presidential election is on November 3. The stock market has already tumbled.
