The American president and his wife Melania tested positive and went into self-isolation
US President Donald Trump announced on October 2 that he and his wife Melania had contracted the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. He wrote about this on Twitter.
"Tonight, my wife and I received a positive test result for COVID-19. We immediately begin quarantine and the recovery process. We will overcome this together," the message said.
Trump said that COVID-19 was diagnosed in his adviser Hope Hicks, who traveled with him on an election "tour" in several cities.
The personal physician of the President of the United States, Sean Conley, said that both "are doing well" and expressed hope that Trump will be able to fulfill his duties as head of state without interruption. The press service of the White House writes about this.
The reaction of the rival of the head of the American state for the upcoming elections, Joseph Biden, has not yet been observed. The latter criticize Trump all the time of the pandemic for the wrong, in his opinion, approach to the fight against COVID-19, and a frivolous attitude towards the threats from the disease.
