US President, Donald Trump and first lady, Melania Trump have tested positive for the deadly coronavirus.
This was confirmed on Friday via his official twitter handle, where it was also confirmed that they have gone on self-isolation for two weeks.
Trump’s positive test comes just hours after the White House announced that senior aide Hope Hicks came down with the virus after traveling with the president several times this week.
Trump is 74 years old, putting him at higher risk of serious complications from a virus that has now killed more than 200,000 people nationwide.
