Early Friday morning, reports came out that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, tested positive for the coronavirus.

Those reports were confirmed when Trump tweeted, “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”

Back in March, Trump shut down the economy and closed travel to Europe at the beginning of this pandemic. He was bashed by the media, who they said he did this too late, even though he knew about it before.

Six months later, over 7 million people in the United States have tested positive for this disease, and President Trump was just added to that list.

Though the virus has been a deadly disease, it mainly only affects people with pre-existing conditions. 99.94% of people survive this disease in the United States, and most of the 0.06% have pre-existing conditions, according to the CDC.

Of the 206,000+ people who have sadly passed away from the virus, less than .05% of those people have died directly from the virus. The rest have died with pre-existing conditions, according to the CDC.

The President will be quarantining for the next two weeks until he tests negative. He will have to cancel his famous rallies for the next two weeks, and he might be forced to cancel his second debate with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Since announcing his positive test, people have been going crazy on social media. A lot of people blame him for the coronavirus, but we will never know if he could have done more to prevent it. Many people are wishing death upon him, including those who have said that we need to stop the hate in the country.

Whether you like him or not, we should all be praying and hoping for a speedy recovery for the President and the First Lady.
