TRUMP GOING TO MILITARY HOSPITAL ON ADVICE OF DOCTORS

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Donald Trump will spend a “few days” at a military hospital on the advice of his physicians after contracting COVID-19.

Trump is to depart the White House by helicopter early Friday evening for Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

The White House says that the visit is precautionary and that Trump will work from the hospital’s presidential suite, which is equipped to allow him to continue his official duties.

Earlier Friday, the White House said Trump remains “fatigued” and had been injected with an experimental antibody drug combination for the virus that has killed more than 205,000 Americans and spread to the highest reaches of the US government.

The president announced early Friday that he and the first lady had tested positive for the coronavirus.

The results came hours after it was revealed that top White House aide Hope Hicks had contracted COVID-19.

His Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, and his wife, Jill, said they have tested negative after encountering Trump at Tuesday’s debate.
