Barron Trump, the US president’s youngest son, tested positive for coronavirus, according to First Lady Melania Trump.
After his parents had tested positive with the virus, Barron Trump was also tested and received negative results.
Upon taking a second test, however, his results were positive.
“Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms,” said Melania in her statement. “I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together.”
The first lady continued to say that her son has since tested negative.
To all who have reached out – thank you. Here is my personal experience with COVID-19 :https://t.co/XUysq0KVaY

Melania also commented on her own experience with the virus.
“I was very fortunate as my diagnosis came with minimal symptoms, though they hit me all at once and it seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms in the days after,” she said. “I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time.”
She has since tested negative.
The first lady ended her statement with some words of support for the American people, encouraging everyone to continue to live the “healthiest life they can.”
On October 2, Donald Trump confirmed he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus. The president was later hospitalized, then released on October 5.
