Son Barron had tested positive: Melania Trump
Barron Trump, the teenage son of US President Donald Trump, had contracted the coronavirus after his parents tested positive for Covid-19 but has since tested negative, First Lady Melania Trump has said.
In a blog posted on the White House website, Melania said Barron, 14, exhibited no symptoms, unlike herself and the President.
Trump announced that he and the First Lady had tested positive in the early-morning hours of October 1. Both have now recovered.
“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.
Melania said that she was very fortunate as her diagnosis came with minimal symptoms, though they hit her all at once and it seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms in the days after. “I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time.”
