Barron Trump, the president’s 14-year-old son, tested positive for the coronavirus shortly after his parents both contracted the virus, first lady Melania Trump revealed Wednesday.

In a short essay titled “My personal experience with COVID-19,” Melania wrote that her son exhibited no symptoms. Both President Trump and his wife tested positive two weeks ago.

“To our great relief [Barron] tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think ‘what about tomorrow or the next day?’” the first lady wrote.

“My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive. Luckily he is a strong teenager and exhibited no symptoms. In one way I was glad the three of us went through this at the same time so we could take care of one another and spend time together. He has since tested negative.”
