In a personal statement on the White House website, Melania Trump announced on Wednesday that her 14-year-old son Barron had tested positive for Corona.
“Two weeks ago, I received the diagnosis that so many Americans in our country and around the world have received – I tested positive for COVID-19,” wrote Melania Trump, 50, on Wednesday October 14th the White House website. “To make matters worse, my husband and our nation’s Commander-in-Chief received the same message.”
The former model stated that her thoughts went to her 14-year-old son and his health immediately after the couple received their own diagnoses.
“To our great relief, it tested negative, but I thought, what about tomorrow or the next day?”
“My fear became a reality when he was tested again and the test came back positive.”
The first lady noted that after his diagnosis, Barron was a “tough teenager and exhibited no symptoms.” Barron has now tested negative.
“In a way, I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of each other and spend time together,” she wrote on the website.
“I had body aches, coughs, and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time,” she said before thanking the doctors who had helped her and her husband with the care.
“I have spent a lot of time thinking about my family. I have also thought of the hundreds of thousands of people in our country who are affected by this disease,” she wrote. “Our country has overcome many difficulties and adversities, and I hope that Covid-19 will be another obstacle that we will overcome. “
