President of the United States of America Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have both tested positive for Covid-19.
Trump made the announcement on Friday, October 2, just hours after it was reported that one of his senior aides, identified as Hope Hicks, had contracted the virus.
Social media blew up after the US President confirmed he and his wife were going to quarantine after testing positive.
Social media users across the world shared their two cents' worth on the news and Trump's supporters showed him unwavering support.
Twitter user, @shawgerald4, commented:
"We have your back President Trump!!! Get well soon."

Social media user, @thejtlewis, added:

"Mr. President, the reason why we support you is because you support us. Thank you for always making us your priority, even when it puts you in harm’s way. We are united and will get through this together. Looking forward to a speedy recovery to both of you."
However, there were those who were less sympathetic to Trump's dilemma. The US president has been accused of not taking the virus serious before.

"He can disinfect himself with bleach, isn't? He said it can be disinfected with bleach. Hope he'll lead by example."
