Barron Trump, President Donald Trump’s 14-year-old son has tested positive for COVID-19 but showed no signs, after both his parents got infected with the virus, first lady Melania Trump stated.
“Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms,” Melania Trump asserted on Wednesday. She said that she and Barron had tested negative for the virus since she came back from the hospital.
“Barron’s fine,” the president informed the reporters as he proceeded for a campaign trip to Iowa from the White House.
Melania Trump’s condition
According to Melania Trump, her symptoms were “minimal” and she expects to recommence her duties as first lady as soon as she possibly can.
“I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time,” she stated.
“I chose to go a more natural route in terms of medicine, opting more for vitamins and healthy food.”
President Trump saw his infection with coronavirus a “blessing in disguise.” He was in a military hospital for three nights following his announcement on October 2 that he and Melania had tested positive. For his treatment, he obtained a trial dual-antibody therapy curated by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc and Gilead Sciences Inc’s antiviral remdesivir, and the steroid dexamethasone.
“In one way I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together,” Melania Trump asserted.
She did not elaborate as to why Barron’s positive test was not publicized in the past, as she has intensely sheltered the ninth-grader’s discretion.
COVID-19 has taken the lives of over 216,000 people in the US and contracted more than 7.9 million people, as per the newest count from Johns Hopkins University.
While older and ill patients take more time to recuperate fully from the virus, most other patients can recover swiftly in about two to six weeks who have mild to moderate symptoms, as informed by the World Health Organization.
