Melania also mentioned that she did not opt for the course of treatment that Donald took. She went for a more natural route of therapy. She took no cocktail of medicines and only had a healthy diet and vitamins. Melania had worn face masks on some occasions but not all. Her staff are now wearing face masks. But the President has been going around giving speeches without a face mask and has also told people without any basis that he is now immune to the virus. He continues to mock people and also his rival Joe Biden for wearing masks in public.
