JAKARTA - President of the United States (US) Donald Trump gave a statement regarding the positive diagnosis of COVID-19 for the child, Barron Trump. Trump said Barron was fine. In fact, Trump said Barron's condition indicated that schools should reopen immediately.
The statement was made by Trump in Des Moines, Iowa, on a mission to strengthen support in states he won in 2016 but is now under threat of being snatched away by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden nearly three weeks before the election.
Earlier, the first lady, Melania Trump, announced in a statement on Wednesday, October 14 that the virus that attacked her and her husband had also infected their son Barron, who is 14.
"I don't think he even knew he had it ... Because they were young and their immune system was strong and they were fighting it. 99.9 percent and Barron is good. And he is free," Trump said of Barron. .
"Barron is positive. Like in two seconds, Barron is fine now. He has tested negative right? Because that's what happened. People get infected and then (the virus) leaves. Take the kids to school, we have to bring the kids back -children to school. "
Trump has been trying to convince states to reopen schools and resume normal daily activities. However, many teacher unions opposed the move, arguing that teachers could be infected by their students.
Funding for protective measures at schools has caught up in a partisan fight in Washington. Melania Trump, meanwhile, said she and Barron had now tested negative for the virus.
Melania said that the symptoms she experienced were very "few". "I had body aches, coughs and headaches, and felt very tired most of the time," he said.
Melania revealed the way she took to heal herself from COVID-19. "I chose to take a more natural path to medicine, preferring vitamins and healthy foods," he said.
