Trump expected to remain in hospital for a few days as a precautionary measure, as Kellyanne Conway also tests positive for Covid-19

President Trump was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre yesterday and is expected to remain there for “a few days”.

A White House spokeswoman stressed that the hospital stay was “out of an abundance of caution” and that the 74-year-old would work from the hospital’s presidential suite, which is equipped to allow him to continue his official duties.

Trump walked out of the White House wearing a mask before boarding Marine One yesterday evening, and in a video on Twitter said: “I think I’m doing very well, but we’re going to make sure that things work out.”

Trump aide Kellyanne Conway confirmed she’d also tested positive for Covid-19.
