The president and first lady confirmed in the early hours of Friday morning that they both have tested positive for COVID-19.

President Trump will stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland for a few days, according to a White House spokesperson.

White House physician Sean Conley said while the president is not requiring any supplemental oxygen, he has begun treatment using the broad-spectrum antiviral medication Remdesivir.

“He has completed his first dose and is resting comfortably,” Conley added.

In May, the FDA approved emergency use of Remdesivir to treat COVID-19 after preliminary results from a US trial indicated it could reduce hospital stays from 15 to 11 days.

The White House releases President Trump’s schedule for tomorrow. As expected, no public events scheduled.
