(CNN)President Donald Trump's campaign manager Bill Stepien has tested positive for coronavirus, according to a senior official, becoming the latest figure in the President's inner circle to be infected with Covid-19.

Stepien received the results of the test on Friday night and is suffering from what the official described as "mild flu-like" symptoms.

Stepien traveled to Cleveland with the President and his team on Tuesday for the first presidential debate and was seen in close proximity to Hope Hicks, the President's top aide who also tested positive.

Stepien was among a group of senior Trump campaign staffers who were tested, but he is the only one whose results came back positive so far.

The news came at the end of the wild day that began when the President announced on Twitter just before 1 a. m. ET that he and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive for coronavirus.

Before the day was over, Trump was being treated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and at least seven Republican politicians and close Trump confidants had announced they too had tested positive for Covid-19.
