Washington: US President Donald Trump on Monday once again prepared to return for political battle after his doctor declared him no longer a risk of coronavirus transmission.
In an interview aired on Fox News on Sunday, Trump said he no longer has COVID-19 and declared he was now “immune” from the virus, a claim that was impossible to prove and comes amid a series of still some unanswered questions about the president’s actual health condition.
The statement and tweet comes a day after Trump’s physician, Dr Sean Conley, said the president had taken a test on Saturday which showed he was no longer “a transmission risk to others”, and there was no longer evidence “of actively replicating virus”.
However, the White House did not clarify as to whether Conley’s statement meant Trump had actually tested negative for the coronavirus.
To date, the White House has also not released when Trump last tested negative for the virus before his positive test, making the timeline of his infection unclear.
