Trump will remain in service a few days from a military hospital
About 17 hours after he announced his diagnosis, Trump walked slowly from the White House to the helicopter which took him to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
He wears a mask and business shirt and does not speak to journalists. “I think I’m doing really well, but we have to make sure things work,” Trump said in a short video message on Twitter.
“Trump will continue to work in a special ward in the hospital for the next few days as a precaution,” said White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany.
Online videos show a small group of Trump supporters outside Walter Reed waving the 2020 Trump flag. Most of them are not wearing masks.
Trump, 74, is showing mild fever symptoms according to a source with knowledge of the matter. White House doctor Sean P Conley explained that Trump is very good, does not need additional oxygen, and is getting the first dose of Remdesivir that Gilead Sciences Inc sells to shorten the hospital stay for Covid-19 patients.
“Fine, I thought! Thank you for all. Love!!!” Trump’s tweet.
