Donald Trump is been taken to the Walter Reed hospital in Bethesda less than 24 hours after he announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump “remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day.”
“Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady,” she added.
Sources at the White House say Trump has had a fever since Friday morning.
In the afternoon, Trump’s physician wrote in a memo he “remains fatigued but in good spirits.”
Trump at 74 years old and clinically obese is at a high risk of developing severe complications from the coronavirus, according to the CDC.
