First Lady Melania Trump revealed her son Barron, 14, tested negative for Covid-19 after first testing positive.
President Trump announced he and his wife tested positive for the coronavirus on Oct. 1. But Barron and his siblings reportedly tested negative.
The first lady revealed her son Barron's positive test in a statement posted on Whitehouse.gov, titled "My personal experience with COVID-19."
"It was two weeks ago when I received the diagnosis that so many Americans across our country and the world had already received - I tested positive for COVID-19. To make matters worse, my husband, and our nation's Commander-in-Chief, received the same news."
She continued: "Naturally my mind went immediately to our son. To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn't help but think 'what about tomorrow or the next day?'. My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive."
Melania was relieved that her 6-foot-5 teenager experienced no symptoms.
"Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms. In one way 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. He has since tested negative."
Melania went on to say she experienced "minimal symptoms, though they hit me all at once and it seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms in the days after. I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time."
President Trump was treated with antibodies and a steroid at Walter Reed Medical Center. But Mrs. Trump chose a "more natural route ... opting more for vitamins and healthy food."
The first lady encouraged Americans to "continue to live the healthiest life they can. A balanced diet, fresh air, and vitamins really are vital to keep our bodies healthy."
