Joe Biden, U.S. Democratic presidential candidate, will on Friday receive a COVID-19 test following President Donald Trump’s recent infection.
“Tonight, the first lady and I tested positive for COVID-19,” tweeted the president of the world’s first power. “We will begin our quarantine and the recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER! “, Trump had posted on his official Twitter handle.
Naija News reports that Trump and Biden had earlier this week attended the first presidential debate. Neither Biden nor Trump wore masks on stage.
Biden will now take the COVID-19 test to know if he has been infected, CNN reports citing a source familiar with his plans.
Everyone attending the debate at Case Western Reserve University would undergo testing for COVID-19 and follow other health safety protocols, reported CNN citing the Commission on Presidential Debates.
