President Donald Trump tweeted shortly before 1AM ET on Friday that he and his spouse Melania have examined optimistic for COVID-19, following studies White Home advisor Hope Hicks, who had traveled with him this week on Air Pressure One, had equally examined optimistic.

UK prime minister Boris Johnson recovered from COVID-19 in April, and Honduras’ president Juan Orlando Hernández was discharged from a hospital in July.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I examined optimistic for COVID-19. We’ll start our quarantine and restoration course of instantly. We’ll get via this TOGETHER!

However as you’ve most likely heard, it’s the USA that has lengthy turn out to be the nation struggling most with the pandemic, with probably the most circumstances and probably the most deaths, each of which far eclipse its proportion of the world’s inhabitants. Over 200,000 folks have died of COVID-19 in the USA alone, almost one-fifth of the 1 million folks that have died worldwide.
Over the previous months, Trump has famously and repeatedly insisted that the pandemic would magically “disappear,” or that the virus was largely innocent, or that it was “fading away,” amongst different claims.
In his current debate in opposition to Joe Biden, he continued to downplay the necessity to put on a masks, stating that he places on a masks “once I assume I want it.” The CDC, amongst others, advises folks to put on masks to forestall spreading COVID-19 to others — not essentially to keep away from contracting it your self, and has suggested even folks with out signs to get examined for COVID-19, as a result of asymptomatic folks can nonetheless contract and unfold the virus.
The query now could be whether or not Trump and his household contracting the virus will do something to vary their outlook and acceptance of the science round COVID-19, and whether or not the American folks will change their behaviors now they’ve seen that Trump can get it too.
