(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — President Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron Trump, contracted COVID-19 — first lady Melania Trump confirmed Wednesday.

In an article posted to the White House website, Melania Trump said her 14-year-old son “exhibited no symptoms” and, most recently tested negative.

The first lady added she endeavored “minimal symptoms” but allowed they hit “all at once.”  She has also recently tested negative.

“It seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms in the days after,” said Melania Trump. “I experienced body aches, a cough and headaches, and felt extremely tired most of the time.”

“”Recovering from an illness gives you a lot of time to reflect. When my husband was taken to Walter Reed as a precaution, I spent much of my time reflecting on my family,” added the first lady.

Neither she nor President Trump divulge the details of their treatment.  

The president, who said he received the antibody treatment Regeneron to help him recover from the virus, is working to get emergency approval on the treatment.  

“They call it a therapeutic, but I don’t think it was therapeutic. I  think it was a cure,” he touted in the Rose Garden on Wednesday. “All I know is once I had Regeneron it worked out very well.”
