Donald Trump Jr Tests Positive For Coronavirus

A spokesperson said the president's son had been "completely asymptomatic so far”.

Donald Trump Jr has become the latest member of the president’s inner circle to test positive for Covid-19.

The president’s son tested positive for the virus earlier this week, according to Bloomberg. He has been quarantining at a cabin since then, CNN reported.

“He’s been completely asymptomatic so far” and is following medical guidelines, his spokesperson said in a statement.

Several people surrounding Donald Trump have been infected with the virus since an election night party at the White House, including chief of staff Mark Meadows and housing secretary Ben Carson.

Earlier this autumn, Trump, first lady Melania Trump and their son, Barron Trump, all contracted the coronavirus after another White House event.

The president was flown to a nearby military hospital for several days to receive treatment after falling ill, and faced significant criticism for failing to fully self-isolate after his return to the White House.

The president has continually downplayed the threat of the virus, even as dozens of people surrounding the White House and several of his family members have been infected.

Coronavirus cases have been climbing dramatically nationwide in recent weeks, with more than 11.8m confirmed cases in the US and more than 253,000 dead.
