It is less than 24 hours that US President Trump has contracted the corona virus – after that he is taken to a military hospital. The White House speaks of a precautionary measure.
US President Donald Trump is transferred to Walter Reed Military Hospital in Bethesda, north of Washington after being infected with the corona virus.
The White House announced on Friday that Trump would be working in the hospital from the president’s office for the next few days. It is a precautionary measure on the recommendation of doctors. Trump showed “mild symptoms” after the infection. But he is still cheerful and has worked all day.
Trump’s doctor Sean Conley announced on Friday evening that the 74-year-old president and First Lady Melania Trump (50) had been tested positive for the corona virus. Trump wrote on Twitter shortly after midnight on Friday, “We will immediately begin our quarantine and recovery. We will get through this TOGETHER.”
About a month before the US election, the infection also forces Trump to suspend his personal campaign appearances. Trump’s campaign manager, Bill Stepien, announced on Friday that all previously announced campaign events involving the Republican would either be postponed or kept online. Trump challenger Joe Biden of the US Democrats is campaigning against it. The election will take place on November 3.
Trump had planned campaign appearances in the states of Florida, Wisconsin and Arizona on Saturday and over the next few days. Regardless of the coronavirus pandemic, he had campaigned in front of thousands of supporters in recent weeks, always appearing without a mask.
