A day after Donald Trump Jr. announced that he was infected with coronavirus, US President Donald Trump tweeted that he was doing “very well” in quarantine.
“My son Donald is doing very well. Thank you!” the president tweeted.
Donald Trump Jr., who was diagnosed earlier this week, was symptomatic and was following all medically recommended guidelines for treating the illness, a spokesperson told news agency Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.
Over 250,000 people have lost their lives to the virus in the US, which is the highest death toll of any country.
In October, President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and their son Barron were also infected with the disease. The president spent three days in a military hospital, where he was treated with experimental drugs, while the first lady recovered at the White House. Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, tested positive for the coronavirus in July.
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie were among those who have also been infected with the virus, working for the president.
President-elect Joe Biden made President Trump’s response to the virus a top issue in the recently concluded US election.
