The United States of America's first lady, Melania Trump, has tested negative for coronavirus.
This was disclosed by the White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.
"Mrs. Trump got tested the same night as the President was tested, out of an abundance of caution. The test was negative," Grisham told CNN.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that four of the biggest technology companies in the world have lost a total of $1.3 trillion since February 2020.
Referred to as MAGA by President Trump, the companies are Microsoft, Apple, Google’s Alphabet and Amazon.
The companies lost their stocks as the markets continue to be upset by the coronavirus.
Business Insider reports that each of the companies has boasted of a market value of more than $1 trillion at one point in time.
At present, only Microsoft and Apple can boast of a market value of $1 trillion or more.
Of the four, Microsoft was hit the hardest as it lost almost 27% of its worth - an estimated $405 billion from its market value.
Apple has also lost over 25% of its stock which translates to about $372 billion and Alphabet shed almost 30% of its value, translating into an estimated $311 billion.
Amazon’s performance was adjudged the best of the four, as it lost almost 21% which is estimated to be $239 billion in market value.
It does not end there for the business community, as the coronavirus outbreak has led to a slowdown of economic activities all over the world.
Legit.ng also reported that the world’s biggest gold and platinum mines, both located in South Africa are gearing up to limit the infection of the coronavirus.
The coronavirus has already disrupted economic activities all over the world and could cause further challenges in places where people operate in close proximity.
Mining firms such as Anglo American Platinum Limited and Sibanye Stillwater Limited have implemented a variety of measures such as temperature checks of employees and availability of services to determine one’s HIV status.
In another report, five new cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) were officially confirmed in Nigeria, bringing the number of the victims to eight as the deadly virus spreads beyond borders.

In a series of tweet, Ogunlesi said four of the victims are Nigerians who just came from the United States of America and United Kingdom.
