US president, Donald Trump ihas been taken to the Walter Reed medical center as he experiences mild coronavirus symptoms.
But an exhumed post from 14 days ago is eliciting comments as to whether the President is not using the ailment as a campaign card to shut out his contender, Joe Biden from the public space.
According to media reports, the White House announced on Friday that Trump, who confirmed late on Thursday that he tested positive for COVID-19, will spend “the next few days” at the military hospital in Maryland.
“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,” the White House said in a statement.
Trump will be transported to the hospital by Marine One.
Earlier in the day, White House doctor Sean P Conley said Trump “remains fatigued but in good spirits.”
A new memo released on Friday afternoon details the mix of vitamins and antioxidants the president is taking for coronavirus symptoms.
Conley, in writing the memo to White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, wrote of Trump’s health status a day after he tested positive for the coronavirus.
“As of this afternoon the President remains fatigued but in good spirits,” Conley wrote.
“He’s being evaluated by a team of experts, and together we’ll be making recommendations to the President and First Lady in regards to next best steps.”
Conley wrote that First Lady Melania Trump was doing mildly better than the president.
