Health Desk- Oct 03 2020: US President Donald Trump has been flown to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.
The White House said the president was ‘fatigued but in good spirits’ and was taken to hospital as a precaution.
Mr Trump received an experimental drug cocktail injection at the White House after he and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for Covid-19.
It is a potential setback as he trails Democratic challenger Joe Biden a month before the presidential election.
He waved and gave a thumbs-up to reporters but said nothing before boarding the aircraft.
In a video posted to Twitter, Mr Trump said: ‘I think I’m doing very well. But we’re going to make sure that things work out. The first lady is doing very well. So thank you very much.’
