Trump leaves the hospital and downplays the Coronavirus again
US President Donald Trump was released from Walter Reed Medical Center on Monday evening following four days of emergency treatment for COVID-19.
Trump has made a theatrical return to the White House after three nights in a military hospital where he received experimental treatments to tackle a disease that has killed more than 210,000 Americans.
Trump will continue his treatment for the illness in the White House his physician said, adding that he “may not entirely be out of the woods yet”.
Even though Trump still has the virus and remains contagious, he took off his mask to pose for pictures and salute from the balcony of the White House.
Despite the fact that the US remains the country worst-hit by Covid-19, with 210,000 deaths and 7.4 million cases, Mr. Trump in a video statement recorded on the White House balcony, downplayed the effects of the virus again and told Americans to “get out there.”
“Don’t let it [coronavirus] dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives,” he said.
The Republican president, who is running for re-election against Democrat Joe Biden in the November 3 election, was admitted to hospital on Friday after being diagnosed with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
However, Trump wrote on Twitter that he was “feeling really good” and that he “will be back on the campaign trail soon.”
