U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania are doing "well" despite contracting Covid-19, according to a statement from their doctor.
America's leader announced his diagnosis in a tweet early Friday morning. Trump said he and the First Lady had contracted the coronavirus and, in an update from White House doctor Sean P. Conley, it was confirmed the President and his wife are doing well during their health scare.
"This evening I received confirmation that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus," he said, adding they plan to quarantine until they test negative for the flu-like virus in 10-14 days.
"The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence. The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country's greatest medical professionals and institutions."
Conley continued: "Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments."
Melania also tweeted that she and her husband are "feeling good" but have postponed all their upcoming engagements. According to CNN, Vice President Mike Pence has tested negative for the virus.
Trump and his wife were tested after Trump's top aide Hope Hicks revealed her positive diagnosis on Thursday, Oct. 1.
Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is challenging Trump in November's presidential election and shared a debate stage with him on Tuesday, offered his and his wife Jill's sympathies to the pair.
"Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery," he tweeted. "We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family."
