U.S. President Donald Trump has said that he has fully recovered from Covid-19 and that it will not infect others, and will return to hold large campaign rallies in the final weeks of the race for the White House.
Trump said he did not present evidence claiming to have drawn a flag from Twitter for violating the rules of the social media platform about misrepresenting information related to Covid-19.
Trump’s comments came shortly after the doctor said he had been tested by the president to show he was no longer contagious. He did not directly say whether Trump had tested negative for Covid-19.
“I’m the highest test, the highest quality, I’m in the best shape,” Trump told the Fox News Show Sunday Morning Futures.
Trump, who is trailing Democratic opponent Joe Biden in the referendum, wants to get back on the campaign trail after more than a week of absence. He plans to travel to major battlefields Florida tomorrow, followed by rallies in Pennsylvania and Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.
The president, who spent three days in hospital after revealing he had tested positive on October 2, said he was no longer on medication for the corona virus and was now free of re-infection.
“I think I’m immune, I do not know, maybe for a long time, or for a short time. It could be a lifetime. No one really knows,” Trump told Fox.
There is no clear scientific evidence that people who have recovered from Kovid-19 have antibodies and are protected from a second infection.
The president ‘s illness has focused on dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which has affected 7.7 million people in the United States and killed more than 214,000.
His administration criticized the White House’s approach to wearing masks and maintaining social distance. At least 11 close Trump aides tested positive for the corona virus.
Despite narrow gains in some states where the November 3 election results are likely to be decided, opinion polls show that Biden is making significant progress nationally.
“Now you have a president, you don’t have to hide in the basement like an opponent,” Trump fired at Mr Biden, mocking him for wearing a mask and keeping a social and distant campaign schedule.
He addressed Trump supporters from the balcony of the White House yesterday afternoon, Urging hundreds of black and Latino supporters to vote.
Trump was not wearing the mask as he spoke when he was alone at the event. In the crowd, most wore masks but did not follow the guidelines for maintaining social distance.
As Trump’s pandemic management has dominated the campaign, the Reuters / Ipsos poll has shown that Americans are gradually losing confidence in how they have handled the health crisis.
Biden, who told donors that the country was being torn apart by Trump’s divisive policies, attended a church in his home state of Delaware today and addressed a virtual fundraiser.
Trump has reiterated his earlier call for states to reopen their economies, despite signs of declining epidemics. Covid-19 new cases in the United States hit a two-month high on Friday.
Nationally, the United States reports an average of 48,000 new cases a day. The Corona virus entered the hospital in the Midwest for the sixth day in a row yesterday, according to a Reuters analysis.
