Donald Trump Jr. confirmed with Fox News Friday night that he tested positive for the coronavirus earlier this week and is now under quarantine.

He is reportedly asymptomatic and quarantining at a private location following the test result. The President's son is also following the proper COVID-19 protocols and will be resting at home until a negative test is passed. The president's eldest son is also said to be following all medically recommended COVID-19 guildelines.

Trump Jr, the president's eldest son, is now the fourth member of the Trump family to have become infected with Covid.

One prior White House celebration has already been deemed a "superspreader event".

The infection has affected several White House aides, including press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and several aides to Vice President Mike Pence - who himself has not tested positive.

Trump Jr. has spread a significant amount of misinformation about the coronavirus.

Over the summer, his Twitter account was restricted for sharing a video that spread false information about the drug hydroxychloroquine and he shared a Facebook meme spreading doubt about the effectiveness of masks against the coronavirus.

The coronavirus pandemic is surging around the country, with new cases regularly topping 150,000 per day since last week.
