U.S. President Donald Trump and his wife Melania have tested positive for the coronavirus after Trump's top aide, Hope Hicks, tested positive for COVID-19. Ms. Hicks accompanied President Trump on the White House helicopter on Wednesday.
Here's more information from "Sky News":
In a tweet, the president said: "Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!"
Mr Trump earlier said he and the first lady were self-isolating after Hope Hicks, one of his top aides, tested positive.
Ms Hicks, 31, who serves as a counsellor to the president, reportedly tested positive for the disease on Thursday, the day after she travelled with the president to a rally.
She has travelled with the president a number of times during the past week, including on presidential helicopter Marine One, and on Air Force One to Tuesday night's first presidential debate.
