Trump spends first night at Walter Reed for Covid-19 treatment

Updates on President Donald Trump's coronavirus diagnosis.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for Covid-19, the president announced early Friday.

Trump was transported by helicopter to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday evening as a precautionary measure recommended by the president’s physician, officials said, and he is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.

The president’s doctor said he was administered an antibody cocktail, along with vitamins, and is fatigued with a low-grade fever, while Melania Trump has a mild cough and headache.

Trump becomes the latest world leader to be diagnosed with the virus just weeks ahead of the election and in the midst of a busy campaign schedule for him and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
