US President Donald Trump has said he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for coronavirus and are in quarantine.

The president announced the news in a tweet.
It comes after one of Mr Trump's closest aides tested positive for coronavirus.

Hope Hicks, the 31-year-old adviser to the president, was the closest aide to Mr Trump to test positive so far.

She travelled with him on Air Force One to a TV debate in Ohio this week.

He has some office rooms in the hospital and as long as he has only mild symptoms, he wants to use the offices to continue with his work and his duties. It is a flu and for the majority of healthy people with no underlying health conditions it is not more dangerous than an average cold or flu.

From the Philippines, I'm praying for you President Trump.

Here in Cebu, three of the governor's brothers were tested as positive. 2 of them chose to be hospitalized, while the other one chose home medication. The 2 that were hospitalized died, but the one who stayed at home was cured.

The governor Gwen Garcia is investigating Chong Hua hospital and held them responsible for the deaths of her two brothers. The other one was even excited to go home and be discharged and taking some selfies to prove that he's feeling well. He told his sister Gwen that he is feeling good already, but all of a sudden he died in the hospital.

But the media will not report this on tv. They will even hide the fact that the governor is running an investigation on this matter. The media will only highlight, Two of the Governor's brothers died of covid.
Best wishes to the Trumps! Stay safe our prayers are with you.

Every day I’m more and more mind blown. I just can’t even fathom how we’ve gotten here. I detest trump to no end but I wouldn’t wish Covid on anyone - it’s very damning to the American people our own president has this. It doesn’t discriminate based on political parties. Wearing or not wearing a mask is not a political statement. I hope this is a real wake up call to all his followers who weren’t taking this seriously because of him not reinforcing the gravity of this disease. It is a reminder how very contagious this is.

I feel he will be alright as long as he doesn't push himself too much, and knowing by his personality, ......he will.

But actually though, I hope he gets better. Although I may strongly disagree with the majority of his political news, I hope he is able to recover from COVID-19.
I work in a health facility and while on the night shift I was watching fox news, when they made the announcement everyone gathered around the TV and I kid you not cheered. The Healthcare industry is not behind him.
