President Donald Trump has been moved to a military hospital from the hallowed White House after being injected with an experimental antibody cocktail. The president is at the Walter Reed military hospital for what is expected to be a stay of a few days. His campaign manager is among the latest senior aides also found to be infected. The White House said Trump’s expected stay of “a few days” at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was precautionary and that he would continue to work from the hospital’s presidential suite equipped to enable him to discharge his official duties. Earlier,  President Trump had tweeted saying that he and First Lady Melania Trump were tested positive for Covid-19. The president said they will begin the “quarantine and recovery process immediately.” The president was tested after Hope Hicks, one of his closest aides was tested positive for coronavirus. Trump, 74, walked out of the White House Friday evening wearing a mask and gave a thumbs-up to reporters but did not speak before boarding Marine One. Members of the aircrew, Secret Service agents and White House staff also seen wearing face coverings to protect themselves from the president on board the helicopter.   Before leaving for Walter Reed, Trump said in a video message, “I think I’m doing very well, but we’re going to make sure that things work out as nine people in President Trump’s inner circle have been tested positive for coronavirus, says FOX NEWS. Meanwhile, Joe  Biden and Kamala Harris, Democrat Presidential and Vice-Presidential candidate respectively, have tested negative for coronavirus on  Friday, October 2 after being in proximity to Trump on Tuesday for the presidential debate. Biden and Trump were standing eight feet apart, according to ‘Fox News Sunday’ host and moderator Chris Wallace. Biden has mocked POTUS Trump once again for not wearing masks and discouraging others to do the same as a preventive measure to contain the dreaded Covid-19. Addressing a union crowd, Biden emphasized that “this is not a matter of politics. It’s a bracing reminder to all of us that we have to take this virus seriously. It’s not going away automatically. We have to do our part to be responsible. That means following the science. Listening to the experts. Washing our hands. Social distancing.”
