Last week, President Donald Trump and the First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.
Melania Trump is currently staying at the White House, while Donald Trump is in the hospital.
The FLOTUS tweeted on Monday that she is “feeling good.”
She also thanked the medical staff and caretakers for their 24/7 checkups as she continues to pray for people affected by COVID-19.
Melania’s tweet also said that she “will continue to rest at home.”
My family is grateful for all of the prayers & support! I am feeling good & will continue to rest at home. Thank you to medical staff & caretakers everywhere, & my continued prayers for those who are ill or have a family member impacted by the virus.

Since she is in the White House and her husband is in the hospital, the First Lady reportedly didn’t come out of her isolation to visit him.
Melania Trump’s tweet seems like a subtle dig at Donald Trump, who left the hospital on Sunday to go for a motorcade drive-by so he could wave to the crowds outside.
Melania at home
A White House official told CNN that Melania is aware of the dangers of the coronavirus. Exposing others is not something she would take the risk at all.
The mom-of-one is also said to have been concerned about infecting her Secret Service agents.
A source told NBC, “She has COVID,” explaining why Melania didn’t go to the hospital on Saturday.
“That would expose the agents who would drive her there and the medical staff who would walk her up to him,” the unnamed source added.
Melania Trump’s reasoning contrasts with the actions of her husband. There has been strong criticism of his decision.
Dr. James Philipps of the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center described Donald Trump’s move as a “political theater” that endangered his Secret Service agents who were with him in the enclosed SUV.
The attending physician at Donald’s hospital called the POTUS’ move as “insanity,” saying, “Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential’ drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days.”
According to the CDC, the coronavirus is highly infectious. It quickly spreads in indoor spaces with little to no circulation.
Donald Trump disregarding coronavirus isolation rules with his stunt seemed to have been designed to divert speculation that he’s not okay, health-wise.
He and his top officials have previously undermined the pandemic’s gravity and continue to do so despite the President’s diagnosis.
In the US alone, almost 200,000 people have already died.
People at the White House are still note required to wear masks.
The POTUS’ controversial actions came after testing positive. He said he was taking COVID-19 “seriously at last.”
“I learned a lot about COVID. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn’t the ‘let’s read the books’ school,” he said.
There are only about 30 days until the US elections take place. Donald Trump’s opponent Joe Biden is leading in the polls.
