For much of 2020, coronavirus has dominated national conversations and even impacted a series of political decisions. Despite much of the fearmongering that’s currently happening, there are certain truths about this virus.
For starters, recovery rates for coronavirus range between 99.997% and 94.6% depending on age. Likewise, the virus itself is mild in eight out of ten cases; nonetheless, these facts and data are often left out when the mainstream media wants to sensationalize stories and scare people.

Last night, Americans learned that Hope Hicks, a presidential aide, tested positive for coronavirus. Then, in the wee hours of this Friday morning, the nation discovered that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, as noted by Breitbart News.

What to Know About the Positive COVID-19 Tests

The president and first lady’s positive coronavirus tests arrived after Hicks, too, tested positive for the virus. The Trump aide wound up getting tested yesterday after displaying coronavirus symptoms while traveling with President Trump and others.
Trump and the first lady both took to Twitter to confirm that they did, in fact, test positive for the highly survivable virus. Likewise, both Trumps confirmed that they will quarantine, recover, and have subsequently put a hold on forthcoming events.

In response to the news of positive coronavirus tests for the first couple, many Americans weighed in. Conservatives wished the Trumps a well and speedy recovery, while certain Democrats cracked jokes and referred to the president as a potential “super spreader.”
However, former 2020 Democrat and Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard wished President Trump and the first lady a “speedy recovery” from COVID-19. Gabbard also extended her “best wishes” to the president’s five children.

A Word from Doctors Close to President Trump

The first couple’s positive COVID-19 tests have raised questions about the recovery process, especially since President Trump in his mid-70s. However, Dr. Ronny Jackson maintains that considering the good health and asymptomatic cases of both Trump and the first lady, a speedy recovery remains highly likely.

Likewise, a letter from President Trump’s current doctor confirms that the first couple will remain in the White House during recovery. Moreover, the president is set to continue “carrying out his duties” as the leader of the free world.
