Trump and his wife, Melania, also tested positive for the new coronavirus,media reported, just after top Trump aide Hope Hicks was diagnosed with neo-crown pneumonia. The U.S. president’s positive diagnosis and symptoms indicate that the president contracted the disease a few days ago. The new coronavirus will take at least a few days to appear in tests, with incubation periods from 2 to 14 days.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former FDA director, now says that if Mr. Trump needs medication, the best new coronavirus treatment he can get is the antiviral drug Redsyvir, which is usually used in hospitals.
Sources told the New York Times that Trump has cold-like symptoms. On Thursday, local time, Mr. Trump attended a fundraiser at his golf club in Bed, N.J., where one attendee said the president appeared to be in a state of inemination when he reached out to about 100 people. It was also reported that the president fell asleep on Air Force One on Wednesday night on his way back from a rally in Minnesota. According to the Associated Press, a White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Mr. Trump’s symptoms were “minor.” Hicks also began to show mild symptoms on the plane home from a rally in Minnesota. At the time, she was isolated from other passengers on the plane.
The pandemic tells people that a person is most contagious a few days before symptoms appear and a few days after symptoms begin to appear. Hicks may have infected others before he was quarantined, as did the Trump family. Experts told the media that next week will be a crucial moment in determining Trump’s illness.
President Trump has long supported the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, a drug he took a few months ago when two White House staff members tested positive. Studies have shown that this antimalarial drug has no effect on the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. Gottlieb told CNBC that White House doctors may consider Redsiwell to treat the Trumps if needed. The drug is effective in reducing recovery time, although it is not the perfect cure for COVID-19 and does not save everyone infected with the virus.
The drug usually enters the body in the hospital intravenously. It’s not surprising that Trump might get special treatment, given his position. The White House has adopted strict new coronavirus screening and other security measures to prevent people infected from contacting Trump. Mr. Trump can’t wear a mask because everyone around him is checked regularly.
Gottlieb said the Trumps had a chance to do well. He added that, according to all reports, Mr. Trump had been in good health and would now be well cared for, but had to admit that his age and weight were two of the risk factors in his fight against the new crown. Trump is understood to be 74 years old and overweight.
The former FDA director also noted that Trump’s diagnosis highlights the dangers of COVID-19. He says everyone is vulnerable in the face of the pandemic. Gottlieb also noted that Trump’s positive diagnosis could affect how some Americans view COVID-19. Those who deny COVID-19 if he develops symptoms may eventually learn the severity of the disease, but if Trump does not show any symptoms, they may continue to downplay the virus.
