U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have tested positive for covid-19 on Thursday, as confirmed by the representative himself on his Twitter profile.

“Tonight, Melania and I tested positive for covid-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We’ll get through it together!”

Tweeted the White House tenant.

Trump’s positive test comes just hours after the White House announced that Hope Hicks, the president’s Spice Counsellor, tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday after being close to the representative several times this week.

Hicks, who serves as the president’s counselor and traveled with him to a rally on Wednesday, tested positive for covid-19 on Thursday, according to a government official who spoke under anonymity to discuss private health information. She is the closest contributor to Trump who has tested positive for the virus to date.

Trump is 74, putting him at increased risk of serious complications from a virus that has now killed more than 200,000 people across the country.

In a statement, White House spokesman Judd Deere stated that “the president takes the health and safety of himself and all who work to support him and the American people very seriously.”

“White House Operations works with the President’s Physician and the White House Military Office to ensure that all plans and procedures incorporate current CDC guidance and best practices limiting COVID-19 exposure to the greatest extent possible in both government complexes and the representative’s travel” Deere said.
