Based on antibody tests, RNA and PCR studies, and a number of others, he noted that the American leader is not contagious. “His tests are negative for several days in a row,” Conley said. Earlier, the doctor Trump has already ruled out the transmission of coronavirus infection from the president to someone, which, he said, is indicated by the absence of temperature for more than 24 hours, as well as a number of “advanced diagnostic tests.”
The fact that the American leader and his wife Melania fell ill with COVID-19 became known on October 2. Prior to this, the coronavirus was discovered by the adviser to the head of state Hope Hicks. The American leader went to a military hospital in Maryland for treatment, and his campaign was suspended.
Trump is probably exaggerating when he says that he not only “survived the coronavirus, but also defeated it.” Back at the White House from the hospital, Trump spoke in front of the cameras and defiantly removed his protective mask. In further video messages, he urged Americans not to be afraid of illness.
Trump’s opponents sharply criticized his actions, criticism poured even from the conservative American media. More than 210,000 Americans have died from the pandemic, in the seriousness of which Trump did not believe from the very beginning.
Five days before he tested positive for coronavirus, Trump attended a meeting at the White House where most of those present were not wearing masks. During the first presidential debate, he taunted Democrat Joe Biden because his opponent believed in the effectiveness of masks in containing the spread of the disease.
