“Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been in quarantine in his country house since he had the result,” said the spokesperson, adding that he had absolutely no symptoms.
Donald Trump announced in early October that he had tested positive, as had his wife Melania. He had been hospitalized for several days at Walter Reed’s military hospital in suburban Washington.
A few days later, the First Lady announced that their son Barron had also been infected with the new coronavirus.
The announcement of the positive test of Donald Jr, 42, comes a few hours after that of Andrew Giuliani, son of Rudy Giuliani, personal lawyer of the American president.
“My son Donald is doing very well. Thank you!” Donald Trump responded on Twitter a few hours after the announcement.
The epidemic is in “exponential” phase in the United States, according to health authorities.
More than 200,000 new cases in 24 hours were recorded Thursday, as well as more than 2,000 deaths, a bar that had not been crossed for months.
