Baron, the 14-year-old son of President Donald Trump, tested positive for COVID-19, but had no symptoms after his parents were infected with the virus, says First Lady Melania Trump.
“Fortunately, he was a strong teenager and had no symptoms,” Melania Trump said in a statement. She and Baron then tested negative for the virus, she said.
Melania Trump said her symptoms were “minimal” and she wanted to resume her duties as a first lady “as soon as possible.”
“I experienced body aches, coughs, headaches and most of the time I felt very tired,” she said.
“I chose to choose a more natural route from a medical point of view by choosing more vitamins and health foods,” said Melania Trump.
Donald Trump stayed at a military hospital for three nights after announcing that he and Melania were positive on October 2.
To treat the virus, he received experimental dual-antibody therapy developed by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc and Gilead Sciences Inc’s antiviral remdesivir, and the steroid dexamethasone.
“In a way, we all experienced this at the same time, so it’s nice to be able to take care of each other and spend time together,” Melania Trump said.
