United Stated President, Donald Trump has recovered from coronavirus and left the military hospital where he has been receiving an unprecedented level of treatment for his COVID-19 infection.
KanyiDaily recalls that President Trump and his wife, Melania, had tested positive to COVID-19 on Thursday, October 1, 2020, after one of the top presidential aides, Hope Hicks, contracted the virus.
In a post shared on his Twitter page, President Trump, who is seeking re-election, said he will be leaving the Walter Reed Medical Centre on Monday night, declaring that he feels really good.
The defiant President urged Americans not to be afraid of coronavirus, which he has always downplayed since COVID-19 outbreak, adding that he feels better than 20 years ago.
“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,” he wrote.
“Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”

Trump’s positive tests comes after the US President revealed that he’s been taking anti-malaria drug ‘hydroxychloroquine’ to prevent COVID-19 infection even though it is not yet a proven treatment.
KanyiDaily also recalls that President Trump had also come under heavy backlash on social media after referring coronavirus as a “Chinese Virus.”
He accused China of being the originator of the coronavirus, saying in confidence that he had seen evidence linking the virus to a virology lab in China’s ground-zero city of Wuhan.
President Trump had also stopped all US funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) over allegations of the organization siding with China to cover up the spread of coronavirus.
