A few hours earlier, Trump announced that he and his wife were going into self-isolation mode since his adviser Hope Hicks was diagnosed with a coronavirus infection COVID-19.
“Hope Hicks, who has worked so hard without the slightest interruption, has just tested positive for the coronavirus. Awful! “ – the president wrote then. He said that he and his wife passed the COVID-19 test. Until the results are ready, the head of state and the first lady of the United States will be on self-isolation.
Hicks’s COVID-19 disease was previously reported by Bloomberg, citing sources. She accompanied Trump on Tuesday to a debate in Cleveland and on Wednesday to a rally in Minnesota, according to the agency.
The President’s physician, Sean Conley, said the President and his wife are doing well. Conley also expressed hope that the 74-year-old head of state will continue to fulfill his duties during the recovery period, reports AP. The White House said the president had canceled all face-to-face events.
