Trump er smittet med Corona – Førstedame også testet positiv

Den amerikanske præsident, Donald J. Trump, og hans hustru, Førstedame Melania Trump, er begge smittet med corona-virus. Det oplyser præsidenten selv her til morgen i en besked på Twitter.

Det forlyder, at begge har det godt, men at de nu går i isolation, indtil de er raske. Trump er 74 år og må derfor formodes at være i en udsat gruppe af corona-patienter.

I foråret ramte corona-virus Storbritaniens premierminister, Boris Johnson. Han blev alvorligt syg og var en periode indlagt på intensiv afdeling.

Dette er brevet, som præsidentens personlige læge har offentliggjort om sagen:
