The US president was taken to Walter Reed Army Medical Centre after showing some symptoms of the COVID-19.

Trump said his administration has developed “really great” drugs against the coronavirus, and urged people not to let it dominate their life.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of COVID-19.
