In the past week, Trump campaigned across several states, attending events with thousands of people present.


In the six days before being hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19, President Donald Trump debated Joe Biden, introduced his nominee to the Supreme Court, attended two fundraisers, and exhorted an estimated 5,000 people at two campaign rallies.

Trump was flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, late Friday as a precautionary measure, officials said. A spokesman said Friday that the president had “mild symptoms” but was feeling “energetic.”

Trump and his wife, Melania, announced their test results early Friday morning. The first lady is quarantining at the White House.

The disclosure set off a flurry of coronavirus tests for people traveling with Trump and those he visited.

The president was in Walter Reed while the first lady stays in isolation to recover. He will have to take precautions, including limited contact with U.S. officials in the line of succession.

At age 74, Trump’s age and weight put him into a higher risk category for more serious COVID-19 symptoms. The White House has not said how long the quarantine will last, but the CDC recommends people isolate for at least 10 days after symptoms start and 24 hours after fevers have broken.
