This is the subject that animates the Web and the media. This Friday, October 2, and a few hours after his close advisor Hope Hicks revealed that he had the coronavirus, Donald Trump tested positive for Covid-19. Same thing on the side of Melania Trump. But in the media whirlwind caused by this news, a member of the Trump family appears to have been obscured. Namely, the son of the US presidential couple, Barron Trump. Because, while the threat of a second wave of coronavirus is still as stubborn and that his parents are fighting for their health, some wonder if the youngest son of the 45th President of the United States, often in the shadow of his brothers and sisters, was affected by the viral illness.
The answer finally fell on Twitter and it is reassuring. Barron Trump tested negative for the coronavirus, as announced by White House correspondent for CNN Kate Bennett on Twitter. Here, the reporter quotes Stephanie Grisham, the chief of staff of Melania Trump. “Barron has tested negative and all possible precautions have been taken to ensure his safety and protect his health,” the latter told the US news channel. A relief for the family of Donald Trump, while the former real estate mogul was hospitalized on the night of Friday 2 to Saturday 3 October, the time of a few days to believe his spokesperson.
New: Barron Trump, 14, has tested negative for the virus. @ StephGrisham45 tells CNN, “Barron has tested negative and all precautions are being taken to ensure he’s kept safe and healthy.”

Donald Trump, person at risk
Indeed, after being tested positive, the former star of the show The Apprentice was transported by helicopter to Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, an establishment dedicated to the care of soldiers of the American armed forces. And if Donald Trump’s camp is reassuring, other sources are concerned about the state of health of the Head of State, considered to be at risk from the coronavirus, he who celebrated his 74th birthday on June 14, 2020. For the time being, Barack Obama’s successor has received an injection of synthetic antibodies and is also taking a vitamin cocktail.
