President Trump Hospitalised at Walter Reed after Coronavirus Diagnosis

By CNN

United States President Trump is currently at Walter Reed medical center after announcing that he had tested positive for Covid-19.

Trump will be spending “the next few days” at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, according to White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.

Trump was spooked after he tested positive for coronavirus and has become increasingly alarmed by his diagnosis as he developed symptoms, like a fever, overnight, according to a person familiar with his reaction. 

The President has had a fever since this morning, a person familiar with the matter says.

The person said the fever remains consistent with the White House’s earlier description of “mild symptoms.”

This is in addition to new information released by the White House doctor, which described Trump as “fatigued.”

“I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support,” Trump said in a video posted on his official Twitter account for the first time since getting diagnosed.

“I think I’m doing very well but we’re going to make sure things work out.”

Trump was administered a dose of Regeneron’s antibody cocktail for coronavirus, according to a memorandum from the President’s physician.

Flurry of tests

Joe Biden announced that he has received two Covid-19 tests this morning, according to remarks he made during a visit to Grand Rapids, Michigan, this afternoon.

Vice President Mike Pence and the second lady also tested negative, according to his spokesperson.

Former President Barack Obama and Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro were among a growing number of people to wish Trump well. “This is not a matter of politics. It’s a bracing reminder to all of us that we have to take this virus seriously. It’s not going away automatically,” Biden said in Michigan today.
