Conley's report, however, did not say whether the US president is still taking medications. A bandage could be seen on one of Trump’s hands at Joint Base Andrews before he departed for Florida.

Legit.ng gathered that Trump was first confirmed to have contracted the virus on October 2, and was subsequently admitted to Walter Reed Army Medical Centre, a military hospital outside Washington.

Trump was on Monday, October 5, discharged from the hospital, and consequently returned to the White House three days after he was diagnosed with the coronavirus.
