President Trump affirmed with his interview on Fox Enterprise that he is not contagious despite his hospitalization at Walter Reed Medical Center; and wouldn’t give attention to a rally if he were infectious.
Trump Medical Treatment
After his various experimental antibody-based therapy by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc., and Gilead’s antiviral drug, redeliver, including taking dexamethasone, President Trump returned to the White House to continue his campaign trail.
He gives an attribution and praises Regeneron’s antibody cocktail, which is not available to most Americans. President Trump also addressed the drug as a “cure” and called out the attention of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to ratify the prescription for an emergency purpose.
Additionally, Regeneron has already submitted an application to the FDA for approval. President Trump also addressed a related drug by Eli Lilly, which is likewise in the FDA’s authorization process.
White House Update
White Home officials asserted Trump began showing indications for the past week. Furthermore, Conley stated last Friday that the president’s oxygen runs dropped twice, and was briefly administered additional oxygen.
As of now, there are 34 White House employees and other laborers who contracted the COVID-19, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Over the pandemic, president Trump faces numerous public health guidance issues, such as mask-wearing and social distancing, to prevent the virus’s spread.
The Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the public that people with mild cases are still infectious no longer than ten days after the symptoms’ onset. Moreover, people who have severe signs can stay infectious for a long time.
On the other hand, Dr. Leana Wen, the former Baltimore health commissioner, also said that the president’s statements regarding his condition are “truly unbelievable.”
Dr. Wen is an emergency physician and a public health professor at George Washington University. She added that the president seems to have a severe case of COVID-19 and likely to remain contagious for longer than mild cases.
The president refuses to go on a full-length quarantine. The Senior Director of the Systemwide Special Pathogens Program at New York City Health, Dr. Syria Madad, also addresses the president’s action; she called it “depicting a disinterest in public health guidance.”
Still, Conley insisted in a memo last Wednesday that the president is fever-free for more than four days and free of symptoms for over 24 hours.
