Donald Trump, the current US President is struck with the COVID-19. The news came when he started feeling exhausted and feverish amidst the ongoing presidential elections events. He also participated in the first presidential debate a few days back against the candidate, Joe Biden. His last event at Walter Reed Facility marked his event with the news of his positive results to the virus. There, allegedly, he had an antibody cocktail as a precaution to the virus. However, people are going haywire at the act that he chose to throw his promotional caps among the crowd when he knew that he had the contaminable disease in him. His lack of awareness regarding the wearing of masks and social distancing also seems to have come at him.
Donald Trump is at Reed National Military Medical Center
This medical center is a military hospital located in Bethesda, Maryland. He went straight to the hospital from the White House in Washington when his health started worsening. Apparently, when in the journey, he was exhausted but in good spirits. On Friday, October 2, 2020, the doctors injected him with an experimental drug combination. This combination will mark a safe medicine to prevent his health from further deteriorating.
In essence, Donald Trump spent months under-shadowing the virus and its lethality. However, when the news of his diagnosis came out, the voice of the Americans made him cancel all his upcoming events. He has been quite busy with his campaigns, from visiting the casket of late Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg and debating for his run. When he went to board Marine One, he donned a mask and jumped into the plane full of Secret Service agents with precautionary robes. He said before leaving for the hospital, “I think I am doing very well. We are going to make sure that things work out.”
The White House is contaminated
Donald Trump tested positive for the COVID-19 a month before the presidential election. The election will take place in November 2020. Other than him, First lady Melania Trump along with several other prominent members of the White House tested positive. This serves as a cautionary move to all those who came in personal contact with the president or other White House workers. The next presidential debate with democrat candidate Joe Biden will take place on October 15. His appearance there and how doctors avail him for that is still under wraps.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany assured the public over the president’ heath. She said, “President Trump remains in good spirits, though he has mild symptoms. At the recommendation of his physicians and medical experts, the president will work from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days.”
