Sean Conley, White House physician, has issued a statement on the COVID-19 test result of United States President Donald Trump and wife, Melania.
Conley addressed his letter to Kayleigh Mcenany, Assistant to President and White House Press Secretary.
The doctor said information was released with the permission of the American leader and his spouse.
He wrote: “This evening I received confirmation that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
“The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.
“The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country’s greatest medical professionals and institutions.”
Conley said the President should be able to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering.
The physician promised to keep Mcenany updated on any future developments.
Coronavirus was first reported late 2019 in Wuhan, China.
The pandemic has killed over 1 million people globally, and infected 34.5 million.
