The first lady recounted her experience going through the disease together with her family.
The coronavirus fully attacked the first family. On the night of October 1, President Donald Trump announced that he and his wife had tested positive and, from then on, a score of more cases were released from the president’s environment . This Wednesday, Melania revealed that the son they have in common, Barron, also had COVID-19 .
“My fear came true when [Barron] took the test again and tested positive . Luckily, he is a strong teenager and showed no symptoms. In a way, I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time because we could take care of each other and spend time together. Since then, it has tested negative, “explained the first lady in an official statement entitled” My personal experience with COVID-19. “
Trump says that she had “minimal symptoms, although I suffered them all at once and it seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms the days after.” According to the statement, Melania Trump had body aches, a cough, a headache “and I felt very tired most of the time.”
The tycoon’s wife highlighted the “incredible” medical team that treated them, comprehensive care enjoyed by a select minority of Americans. In a country in which more than 7,895,000 people have been infected and more than 216,000 have died – according to Johns Hopkins University – many people do not have health coverage or their access to it is limited.
Contrary to the president, who even received experimental treatments reserved for severe cases, the first lady affirms that “he chose a more natural route ” and took vitamins and healthy food. Melania Trump said in the same statement that she has also tested negative and that she will resume her schedule “as soon as possible.”
His recovery must not have been smooth since four days after announcing his positive, a former assistant and friend published an audio in which the first lady made fun of the situation of migrant minors in the United States and minimized the conditions in the that are held in cages. The White House has filed a complaint against Stephanie Winston Wolkoff , who also wrote a revealing book about her friendship with Melania Trump.
