Donald Trump flown by helicopter to hospital after contracting coronavirus

Donald Trump was taken to hospital on Friday evening after contracting coronavirus, a dramatic escalation in his battle against Covid-19 having tested positive.

 

The White House has insisted that Donald Trump was taken to hospital on Friday as a “precaution” after the US president was infected with coronavirus.

Mr Trump, who along with wife Melania has tested positive for Covid-19, was flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for a “few days”, his press secretary said.

It comes as a source told CNN that the president had a fever and is “struggling to breathe” while another said he was “fatigued”.

On Friday evening Mr Trump walked unaided from the White House to a waiting helicopter before being flown to the hospital.

The president has been given an experimental treatment of synthetic antibodies for Covid-19, his doctor said.

The White House physician says his medical team has “elected to initiate Remdesivir therapy” for Donald Trump.

Dr Sean Conley said Mr Trump was “doing very well” and “not requiring any supplemental oxygen”.

Dr Conley said he recommended that Mr Trump be moved to Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre “for further monitoring”.
