Donald Trump and Melania to quarantine till COVID-19 reports arrive
New Delhi : Donald Trump has announced that after one of his top aide tested positive for coronavirus, he will quarantine till his test reports are announced. His wife Melania Trump will also go into quarantine, a report said.
The latest development is likely to disrupt his scheduled public appearances ahead of the crucial Presidential Elections in the States.
In an interview with Fox News, Donald Trump has confirmed that his close aide Hope Hicks has tested positive for the coronavirus. Later, in the day he announced on Twitter that he and First Lady Melania Trump were awaiting their own test results.
"She did test positive. I just heard about this. She tested positive," Trump told Fox News.
"She's a hard worker. Lot of masks, she wears masks a lot but she tested positive," he added. "Then I just went out with a test. I'll see -- you know, because we spent a lot of time -- and the first lady just went out with a test also."
"In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!" he tweeted soon after. His results are expected on Thursday or Friday.
