Joe Biden and wife Jill have tested negative for Covid-19 following positive results for Trump and first lady Melania

“I’m happy to report that Jill and I have tested negative for COVID. Thank you to everyone for your messages of concern,” Biden tweeted on Friday. He was tested that morning, after President Trump announced on Thursday evening he was positive for the virus.

“I hope this serves as a reminder: wear a mask, keep social distance, and wash your hands,” Biden added in his tweet.

The news has been celebrated by liberals and conservatives alike, as more and more government officials say they have tested positive for the virus.

President Trump’s announcement that he and his wife had contracted the virus came after it was discovered on Thursday that a close adviser, Hope Hicks, had tested positive. Since then, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen have also been tested, later announcing that the results were negative.
