President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have tested positive for coronavirus.
Via Twitter this afternoon, just before 1 a.m. local time for the president, Trump confirmed that he and his wife are isolating themselves at the White House.
“We will start the quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this together!” He wrote.
Trump is believed to have contracted the virus from Hope Hicks, one of the president’s closest advisers who traveled with him on Air Force One from Tuesday’s presidential debate to his gathering in Minnesota yesterday.
Everyone seems to have an opinion about the diagnosis of the president, who has long been accused of not taking the Coronavirus seriously.
Few world leaders have already reached out to the president.
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has wished the Trump family a “speedy recovery”.

During the presidential debate on Tuesday, Mr. Trump was asked whether he believed in the effectiveness of masks, a question he used to mock his opponent, Joe Biden.
“I wear masks when needed.” Pointing to Biden, Mr. Trump said, “I don’t wear masks like him.
“Every time you see him, he has a mask. He can speak at 200 feet and appear with the largest mask I’ve ever seen.”
Twitter quickly jumped on that mundane comment after the president tested positive.
Others simply wished the president a speedy recovery, with one describing Trump’s diagnosis as a “nightmare” and a “complete failure” by the White House team.
Mr Trump, who is 74, is at risk of developing severe coronavirus symptoms because of his age.
Melania, who is 24 years younger than the president and has no high risk, said she and her husband “feel fine”.
Of course, there were a lot of reactions related to bleaching after the president seemed to indicate that the injection of the toxic chemical may have an effect on the Corona virus.
Even Telstra decided to take her opinion, and released a joke about 5G after conspiracy theorists claimed that the Corona virus had spread through communication towers that transmit 5G.
