Melania Trump Has a 'Lingering Cough' Amid COVID-19 Recovery, Cancels Appearance

Melania Trump has canceled an upcoming appearance due to a “lingering cough” that she has been experiencing amid her recovery from COVID-19.

The First Lady of the United States tested positive for the coronavirus a couple of weeks ago at the same time as her husband, President Donald Trump. The couple’s young son Barron also has the virus.

Melania‘s chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement that the First Lady “continues to feel better every day following her recovery from COVID-19, but with a lingering cough, and out of an abundance of caution, she will not be traveling today.”

In a statement released last week, Melania said that she had tested negative for the virus and hoped “to resume my duties as soon as I can.”
