Donald Trump Taken To Hospital Hours After Testing Positive For Coronavirus


US president Donald Trump has been taken to hospital as his condition appears to have worsened after testing positive for coronavirus, according to White House pool reporters.

Trump is being airlifted to Walter Reed hospital “out of abundance of caution”, an official said.

The president will remain for a “few days” at the military hospital on the advice of doctors.

Trump, 74, will be moved to a special suite at the Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland, the official added.

Doctors urged the move so Trump could get immediate care if needed, they said. 

 

 

“President Trump remains in good spirts, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.

“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 president was being flown to the hospital, per multiple outlets, and was expected to undergo tests there, unnamed sources told The New York Times.

Trump, who has played down the threat of the coronavirus pandemic from the outset, wrote on Twitter earlier on Friday that he and his wife Melania were going into quarantine after testing positive for the virus, which has killed more than 200,000 Americans and severely damaged the US economy.

Trump is at high risk because of his age and weight. He has remained in apparent good health during his time in office but is not known to exercise regularly or to follow a healthy diet.

The news came after White House doctor Sean P Conley wrote that Trump “remains fatigued but in good spirits”.

The language shifted over the day, with White House officials initially majoring on the fact he was in “good spirits”.
