Joe Biden and wife test negative for Covid-19

Presidential candidate Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden have both tested negative for Covid-19.

According to NBC News, Biden’s negative test came hours after he tweeted well wishes to President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump.

The Former Vice President wrote, “Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family.”

President Donald Trump revealed that he and his wife Melania tested positive for the virus on Thursday morning, prompting those who were in close proximity to him to be tested.

These include those who were present at the first presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Trump has since been taken to the Walter Reed Military Medical Center where he will spend a few days to be treated for the virus.

Others in the Trump camp have also contracted the virus: longtime aid Hope Hicks, Republican Party chair Ronna McDaniel, and Republican Senator Mike Lee from Utah.

Former White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway also revealed that she, too, had contracted the virus.
