President Donald Trump has been rushed to a military hospital for the treatment of his Covid 19.
Trump, 74, will be moved to a special suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, for the next few days as a precautionary measure, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said.
He is also being given an experimental drug.
The White House spokesperson added “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,” she said in a statement.
Trump has a mild fever, according to a source familiar with the matter. White House doctor Sean P. Conley said that he is “fatigued but in good spirits.”
An active Twitter user, Trump has not posted any messages since then.
Trump is at high risk because of his age and weight. He has remained in apparent good health during his time in office but is not known to exercise regularly or to follow a healthy diet.
