US President Donald Trump's personal doctor has released a statement after the 74-year-old and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for Covid-19.
In a memorandum for White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Friday, Physician to the President Sean Conley said he had "permission" to release the following information.
"This evening I received confirmation that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus," he said.
"The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.
"The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country's greatest medical professionals and institutions.
"Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments."
Dr Conley, who became the president's physician in May 2018, is a US Navy veteran and is qualified in osteopathic medicine.
