President Donald Trump tests positive for COVID-19

President of the United States Donald Trump and his wife, First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump have both tested positive for COVID-19 today.

The President confirmed on Twitter this afternoon that he had been infected with the coronavirus, just two hours after the pair were put into quarantine after coming into contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

That confirmed case was Hope Hicks, a close aide to the President.

Trump says he will now begin his quarantine and recovery process immediately alongside wife Melania.

 

Meanwhile in Australia we have recorded just 27,111 confirmed infections of COVID-19, including 13 new cases today.

Today Australia announced it is going to open its border to New Zealand from 16 October. Read more here.
