The New Covid-19 Hot Spot is the White House

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump Test Positive for Coronavirus

Covid-19 is less dangerous than a cold. March 2020

HAVANA TIMES – President Donald Trump has announced he and first lady Melania Trump have COVID-19, joining 7.3 million people across the United States who have tested positive for the novel coronavirus since the first recorded U.S. case in January. Just before 1 a.m. Friday, Trump tweeted, “Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” reported Democracy Now.

The stunning announcement rattled world capitals and set off fears that the president of the United States may be at the center of a superspreader event in the halls of power in Washington, D.C. — and at several recent gatherings headlined by Trump.

Those include a campaign fundraiser at Trump’s Bedminster golf club on Thursday; a campaign rally in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday attended by thousands of Trump supporters; and Tuesday night’s presidential debate with Joe Biden in Cleveland, Ohio.

[Later on Friday it was reported that Trump was taken to the hospital for close observation while Melania remains at the White House.]

  • How serious Mark is it to have to receive oxygen twice in 24 hours? Everybody is concentrating on
    “the President”, but what about the candidate? Just think, one month prior to an election, one of the candidates is in hospital suffering with Covid 19, with probable lung damage – and having been given oxygen support twice within 24 hours – and serious underlying conditions including obesity and age. That explains the scramble controlled by Trump, to minimize discussion of all the medical problems. Apart from the well known problems regarding his psychology, will he be medically sound enough to be President for four years? Dubious to say the least! Covid leaves after effects, it doesn’t “just go away, like a miracle.”

  • Biden and wife tested negative – there are advantages in wearing a mask !

    Was it fake news that a Lysol truck was seen delivering disinfectant to the White House !

  • A positive test does not mean death or even serious illness. He will receive the best care in the world.
