President Donald Trump, who revealed he tested positive for coronavirus early Friday, is leaving the White House for Walter Reed Military Medical Center, it has been revealed.
He will remain at the military hospital based in Bethesda, Maryland, for a ‘few days’ where the White House said he will be working while he undergoes tests.
The president is to depart from the White House by helicopter later on Friday and he will stay in the hospital’s presidential suite, which is equipped to allow him to continue his official duties.
White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah confirmed that Trump had not transferred power to Vice President Mike Pence, despite his hospitalization. ‘The president is in charge,’ she said.
Trump, 74, has been treated for COVID-19 with a ‘cocktail’ of antibodies produced by Regeneron, his doctor announced on Friday, and is ‘fatigued’ but otherwise in good spirits, as is First Lady Melania Trump.
