Barron Trump also contracted COVID-19, Melania Trump reveals


WASHINGTON — Barron Trump, the president’s youngest son, contracted the coronavirus but has since recovered, Melania Trump revealed on Wednesday.

In an essay published on the White House website, the first lady spoke about her experience with the disease and said the couple’s 14-year-old son also tested positive.

“Naturally my mind went immediately to our son,” she wrote, recounting her and the commander-in-chief’s diagnosis with the respiratory bug earlier this month.

“To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think ‘what about tomorrow or the next day?’ My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive,” she went on.

“Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms. 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. He has since tested negative.”
