Donald Trump's campaign events will either be postponed or held virtually following his Covid-19 diagnosis.

US President Donald Trump's campaign events ahead of the November election will be held virtually or postponed after he tested positive for coronavirus, his campaign manager said Friday.

"All previously announced campaign events involving the president's participation are in the process of being moved to virtual events or are being temporarily postponed," campaign manager Bill Stepien said.

Events involving First Lady Melania Trump, who also tested positive for coronavirus, have also been postponed, Stepien said in a statement.

"All other campaign events will be considered on a case-by-case basis and we will make any relevant announcements in the days ahead," he said.

Vice President Mike Pence, who tested negative for Covid-19, would remain on the campaign trail, Stepien added.
