US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for Covid-19.
"We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately," Trump said in a tweet early on Friday.
Earlier on Thursday, Trump said he was beginning a quarantine process after Hope Hicks, a top adviser and trusted aide, tested positive for the coronavirus.
Hicks travels regularly with the president on Air Force One and, along with other senior aides, accompanied him to Ohio for the presidential debate on Tuesday and to Minnesota for a campaign event on Wednesday.
