The White House is reporting that President Trump is being moved to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center “for a few days” in what they’re calling a precautionary measure after his earlier diagnosis of COVID-19.
Mr. Trump will work from the hospitals presidential suite, “which is equipped to allow him to continue his official duties,” according to a report from AP News.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said that the present “remains in good spirts, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day.” McEnany says the move is “out of an abundance of caution and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts.”
President Trump is at an increased risk because of his age and weight. Earlier Friday it was reported that Trump had been injected with an experimental antibody cocktail by the White House physician.
Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden and his wife Jill have both tested negative for the coronavirus.
