US President Donald Trump has been taken to Walter Reid hospital after being confirmed with Coronavirus.
President Trump was initially isolated and was said to have been ‘convalescing’ at the White House with his wife Melania who had also tested positive for Covid-19.
“I want to thank everyone for the tremendous support,” President Trump said in a twitter.com video message.
“I think I am doing very well but we are going to make sure things work out. The First Lady is doing very well. So thank you very much. I appreciate it I will never forget it.”
US media report said he had developed a fever.
President Trump has come under fire for disparaging the use of masks and politicizing medical advice contributing to higher levels of deaths in the US.
