President Trump Tested Positive for Coronavirus

President Trump Tested Positive for Coronavirus

President Trump tweeted at 12:54 a.m. Eastern time on Friday that he and the First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for Covid 19. “We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately,” Trump wrote. “We will get through this TOGETHER!”

President Trump was taken to Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. for “further evaluation” and out of  “an abundance of caution,” the White House reported late Friday afternoon. It should be noted that Trump’s age, 74, and likely also his weight puts him at a higher risk of getting more illness for the coronavirus.
