President Donald Trump's wife Melania on Tuesday canceled a rare joint appearance with him at a campaign rally due to what was described as a "lingering cough" following her infection with the coronavirus.
"Mrs. Trump 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," the First Lady’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement quoted by AFP.
The First Lady's appearance with Trump in Erie, Pennsylvania, was to have been her first at a campaign rally in more than a year.
Trump, the First Lady and their teenage son Barron all tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.
The First Lady's case was described as having been considerably milder.
However, last week she revealed details of the illness in a statement entitled "My Personal Experience with COVID-19" in which she said the aftermath had been difficult.
It was in that statement that the First Lady revealed that Barron, 14, had also become infected, although he has since recovered.
