Mayor Walsh Reacts After President, First Lady Contract COVID-19

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said the fact that the President and the First Lady contracted the coronavirus shows that "no one is safe."

Mayor Walsh began his press conference Friday by wishing President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump well, after the President announced early Friday morning that he and the First Lady had both tested positive for COVID-19.

"I want to start today by wishing the President and the First Lady, and members of their staff a speedy recovery, along with anyone that's dealing with the coronavirus," Walsh said. "It certainly goes to show that this virus can certainly impact anyone."

Walsh said since the virus is impacting every community, and everyone is vulnerable to catching it, it's important for the public to continue taking precautions to slow the spread, including social distancing, and wearing face coverings.

"Just think about the President of the United States, that already lives in a bubble... and when I say that, the President is pretty much isolated," Walsh said. "It's probably one of the loneliest jobs I can imagine anyone would ever have, and the fact that he can contract the coronavirus, and with the protocols around him, shows you that no one is safe. No one is safe."

"That's why I think it's so important for people to be very careful," Walsh added. "It should definitely put us all on alert that this virus is very serious."
