Melania Trump tested for coronavirus

U.S. President Donald Trump said that first lady Melania Trump had tested negative for the novel coronavirus.

Trump answered in the affirmative when asked by a reporter at the White House whether the first lady had been tested for COVID-19 and said the test came back negative.

“She’s fine,” Trump told reporters in the White House briefing room Monday evening. “Negative, yes.” 

Trump also tested negative for coronavirus roughly a week ago, after coming in contact with two individuals, the weekend prior who had since tested positive for the virus, the Hill reported.
