The White House doctor said that the result of the Corona virus tests that US President Donald Trump underwent “came negative for several days.”
This comes about ten days since the US President announced that he and his wife, Melania, had been confirmed to have COVID-19.
Before Trump resumed his campaign activities, White House doctor Sean Conley said that the results of the Corona virus tests that Trump underwent were negative for several days in a row, explaining that the “Abbott Binax Now” rapid test was used during these tests.
Conley added that the negative results of the tests, along with other clinical and laboratory data, indicate the end of the period during which Trump was likely to infect others.
The medical team treating Trump confirmed that “based on the available data, and based on the rules of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the president is no longer a carrier of infection.”
The medical team’s statement was issued in conjunction with the US President’s boarding of Air Force One, heading to Florida to attend an important election event.
Trump resumed his campaign activities after a break of nearly ten days, to attend a campaign conference in Sanford, Florida.
Trump has faced criticism for not encouraging his supporters to wear masks during election conferences and other campaign activities.
Some also held him responsible for the failure of work crews surrounding him inside the White House to abide by preventive measures and social distancing rules.
As a result, at least 11 Trump aides were infected with the Corona virus in the recent period.
The brief statement of the medical team treating the US president did not mention the health condition of his wife Melania.
