(CNN)First lady Melania Trump detailed her experience with Covid-19 in an essay posted on the White House website, including that her son, Barron, 14, tested positive.

She has now tested negative for the virus, as has her husband, President Donald Trump, according to his doctors. "Naturally, my mind went immediately to our son," she wrote. Barron Trump initially tested negative after she and the President contracted Covid. But the teenager was tested again and turned up positive. Trump says her son had "no symptoms," and has now tested negative. The President told reporters on Wednesday that his son, Barron, is doing "fine" when asked how his son was doing in the wake of Melania Trump's essay. As for her symptoms, the first lady wrote they were "minimal, though they hit me all at once and it seemed to be a roller coaster of symptoms in the days after." Read More She said she had body aches, cough, headaches and was extremely tired. Unlike her husband, Melania Trump did not go to the hospital for treatment, and remained sequestered at the White House residence, her spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN. Similarly, Trump writes she did not opt for the same course of treatment as the President, she says she "chose a more natural route," relying on "vitamins and healthy food," and not a cocktail of medications. Though the first lady taped a couple of PSAs about mask-wearing while her husband was still flouting their use, she has also made high-profile appearances without them -- including the first presidential debate. She also gave a Rose Garden speech filled with an audience during the Republican National Convention. This story is breaking and will be updated.

I wonder why they lied...not once or twice, but several times.

Oh, and any discussion of Barron is off-limits for obvious reasons.

The fact that so soon after testing positive they wouldn't be testing negative.

Just another in a long series of lies oozing out of the WH.

This smelled rotten from day one. Just another insanely convoluted Trump scams.

Awful what they were exposed to. A rich family going from rich to rich and powerful? How sad.

Glad to see Melania persevered and Barron apparently escaped the symptoms.
