One month before the presidential election / Donald and Melania Trump become infected with COVID-19
The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, have tested positive for COVID-19.
The news comes a month before the presidential election, when incumbent President Trump needs to be quarantined along with his wife to fight the virus.
The announcement of the health status of the presidential family was given by Trump himself through a post on the Twitter platform, in the early hours of Friday.
"Tonight, the First Lady and I came out positive with COVID-19. We will start the quarantine and recovery process immediately. "We will succeed together," Trump wrote.
It is learned that the presidential couple have been infected by Hope Hicks, the president's adviser.
Hicks traveled with the president on an Air Force One plane for the first presidential debate in Cleveland on September 29, and with the president's Marine One helicopter for a rally in Minnesota on September 30.
