Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, tested positive for the coronavirus, a spokesman for Mr. Trump said Friday.
Mr Trump tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week and has been in isolation since Monday, his spokesman said. He added that Mr Trump has shown no symptoms and is following virus protocols.
Mr Trump is the president’s second son to test positive for the virus. Barron Trump tested positive last month. Trump’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle also tested positive for the virus in July. President Trump tested positive for the virus in October.
Over the past few months, Mr. Trump’s eldest son has questioned the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, stating in an interview with Fox News that the outbreak has been under control since deaths from the virus dropped to “next to nothing”.
Mr Trump’s diagnosis is that at least 1,962 new coronavirus deaths and 187,428 new cases were reported in the U.S. on Thursday.
