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.

tokinGLX: is almost as if there is some strange difference between doing things that mitigate the spread of a contagious virus vs practically inviting it with "herd mentality." it is almost...almost(!) as if trying to stop it from spreading might actually assist in stopping it from spreading and not doing anything all leaves you vulnerable to infection and further spreading of it. so weird!
