Melania Trump reportedly refused to leave Covid-19 isolation in order to keep from infecting Secret Service agents
The first lady said on Monday she would continue to rest at home as she recovered
Melania Trump did not visit the president in hospital because she didn't want to expose Secret Service agents to the risk of coronavirus, according to reports.
Quoting an anonymous White House official, NBC News reported the first lady remained in isolation on the weekend over concerns of spreading the Covid-19 infection.
"She has Covid," the official told NBC News on Saturday. "That would expose the agents who would drive her there and the medical staff who would walk her up to him."
