US President Donald Trump has said he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for coronavirus and are now self-isolating.

Mr Trump, aged 74 and therefore in a high-risk group, wrote on Twitter: “We will get through this together.

Earlier on Thursday, Mr Trump said he and his wife, who is 50, were going into quarantine after Ms Hicks’s positive test.

He tweeted: “Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for Covid 19. Terrible!

“The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!”

It is not clear how Mr Trump’s positive test will affect arrangements for the second presidential debate, which is scheduled for 15 October in Miami, Florida.

Mr Trump is not the first world leader to have tested positive. Earlier this year, Boris Johnson and Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro were infected. They both have since recovered, although Mr Johnson had to receive regular oxygen treatment to help his breathing during hospitalisation.

  1. Fake news 🤣🤣🤣 he just know he is going to lose, better leave with some dignity wile he still have it🤣 I just don’t get one thing, how are the best wishes sent to Donald Trump news🙄 is it relevant to be broadcasting this!!! BBC news are a little bias, that’s what it looks like to me. So much trouble that this men have caused, but you still feel the need to show positive things about him. There is nothing positive about Donald Trump , the men is train rack😕 take your racist colored glasses off.

  2. And now the big awaiting begins. Two weeks untill we will know if he will make it or not. Hmm I am really curious as to how this saga will end. I bet everyone is holding their breaths right now. Some have started to celebrate early. If Trump does not get any syptoms and survive(which is highly unlikely), he will win this election. If not Biden wins. Ah we will see.
