US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have both tested positive for COVID-19.
Confirmation of this was tweeted by Mr Trump himself.
Both were tested after one of the President’s advisors, 31-year-old Hope Hicks, tested positive.
Ms Hicks travelled with him on Air Force One to a TV debate in Ohio earlier this week.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!
