The president and the first lady are both positive – Trump announces it on Twitter
New twist in the United States. Trump recently tweeted: “The First Lady and I tested positive for Covid-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER”.
Following, in a short official statement, the official White House doctor Sean Conley reported: “The President and the First Lady are both fine at the moment and intend to stay at home inside the White House during their convalescence. (…) Rest assured that the President will continue to carry out his duties without any interruption as he recovers, and I will continue to update you on all developments. “
For obvious reasons, the electoral tour has been interrupted at the moment, obviously risking to damage all the efforts already made in view of the next elections. Due to force majeure, the couple will have to remain in quarantine awaiting the next developments.
Melania Trump also tweeted: ” As too many Americans have done this year, Donald and I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good and I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe and we will all get through this together”
Many experts have already pronounced on the issue, specifying that Donald Trump is in a condition of “high risk of hospitalization” due to the high probability of complications. The risk, according to the doctors, is linked to the age of the subject (74 years old) and not perfect health conditions, especially due to overweight.
However, many remain hopeful and are sure that the President will overcome this new challenge, to the detriment of all forecasts.
It is certain, however, that this new twist will undermine even more the already delicate situation linked to the upcoming presidential elections and the future of the United States of America.
The world once again holds its breath waiting for new developments.
