President Trump tested positive for the coronavirus late last night. While the White House assured the American people that he has “mild symptoms,” he is being flown on Marine One to Walter Reed Military Medical Hospital for treatment. The White House confirmed he will stay in the hospital for a couple of days.
With just days until the election, President Trump has been receiving top treatments for the coronavirus. In a statement, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, “President Trump remains in good spirts, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day. Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady,”
Trump's physician Sean Conley provided an update about the president's treatment. He said, in a memoradum, “As a precautionary measure he received a single 8 gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail. He completed the infusion without incident."
Conley continued, “In addition to the polyclonal antibodies, the President has been taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin."
According to Conley, the "president remains fatigued but in good spirits." Melania has only "a mild couch and headache," and the rest of the Trump family members tested negative for the virus today.
