Trump says he is no longer a transmission risk
WASHINGTON (US) – US President Donald Trump appeared back to his old self on Saturday at the White House. He was in his first public event since being diagnosed with COVID-19. His doctor said he was no longer a transmission risk.
Trump took a test on Saturday which showed he was no longer a “transmission risk to others,” his physician Sean Conley said. The tests showed there was no longer evidence “of actively replicating virus,” he added.
It was, however, not clear, whether Trump had actually tested negative for the coronavirus. At least 11 of his close aides have tested positive for the virus.
He was again standing alone and not wearing a mask, Trump spoke from a White House balcony, which was-his first public event since being diagnosed.
“I’m feeling great,” he told the crowd.
Asked about the Trump event in New Castle, Delaware, Biden said, “They should be socially distant and wearing masks. It’s the only responsible thing to do.”
