A Tweet from the President of the United States, Donald Trump, revealed that the First Lady and himself have tested positive with COVID-19.

The Tweet came at 11:54pm on Oct. 1, 2020 and has been constantly covered by media outlets since its release.  Much speculation has transpired as to how the President and his wife contracted the virus.

It has been known for some time that one of President Trump’s closest advisors, Hope Hicks, contracted the virus. Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Utah Sen. Mike Lee, three White House Reporters and One White House Staffer have also tested positive for the virus.

The question of where President Trump contracted the virus is believed to either be the White House Rose Garden event in which he announced his nomination for the new Supreme Court Justice, Amy Coney Barett, who tested positive for COVID-19 over the summer, the Presidential Debates, or one of his rallies. 

Medical experts continue to question the possibility of “super spreader” events. 

It should be noted that at the time of writing this article President Trump was taken to Walter Reed Military Medical Center where he will have a private wing as he fights the virus.

As of Oct. 8, President Trump is back at the White House.
