United States President, Donald Trump has said, he and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for coronavirus and are now self-isolating.
Mr Trump, aged 74 and therefore in a high-risk group, wrote on Twitter, that they will get through it together.
It came after Hope Hicks, one of his closest aides, tested positive.
Mr Trump’s announcement came, just over a month before the presidential elections on 3 November where he faces Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
Miss Hicks, 31, travelled with Mr Trump on Air Force One to the first presidential TV debate with Mr Biden in Ohio on Tuesday. Some of Mr Trump’s family members who attended the debate were seen not wearing masks.
A person is required to self-isolate after either showing coronavirus symptoms or a positive test.
Meanwhile, quarantine restricts the movements of those who have been in contact with an infected person, but are not themselves positive or symptomatic.
