Kellyanne Conway, who was one of the President’s longest-serving advisers, was quarantined after suffering a « mild cough »

The news came after M Trump and First Lady Melania announced they tested positive for Covid-19

The « very tired » US president, who experienced « breathing difficulties », was airlifted to a military hospital on Friday evening, where he was given the broad-spectrum antiviral drug Remdesivir

Speaking to Twitter on Saturday, Ms Conway confirmed she had the virus but was doing well

Meanwhile, around 17 hours after going public with his diagnosis, Mr. Trump walked slowly from the White House to a helicopter waiting to be taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland

« I think I’m doing great, but we’ll make sure it’s okay, » he said in a brief video post on Twitter

The White House has stated that Mr. Trump would continue to work in a special on-site suite for the next few days, with press secretary Kayleigh McEnany saying the hospital stay was a « precautionary measure »

The 74-year-old president has a mild fever, a source familiar with the CNN file quoted a source as saying he had had difficulty breathing

White House doctor Sean P Conley said Friday night that Mr. Trump was doing very well, did not need extra oxygen and had received a first dose of Remdesivir, an intravenous drug that shortened hospital stays

In a tweet on Friday night, the president wrote: “It’s going well, I think! Thank you to all LOVE !!! « 

The diagnosis was the latest setback for the Republican president, who is behind Democratic rival Joe Biden in opinion polls ahead of the November 3 presidential election

M Trump has played down the threat of the coronavirus pandemic from the start, even as the disease has killed more than 200,000 Americans and hammered the US economy

A number of other prominent Republicans also tested positive on Friday, including Senators Mike Lee and Thom Tillis
