Status: 07.10.2020 04:08 a.m..

The corona virus continues to spread in the Trump environment. The US President is meanwhile downplaying the virus again. His challenger Biden is now questioning participation in the next TV debate.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is considering suspending the second television debate with US President Donald Trump next week if Trump still tested positive for the corona virus at this point. “If he still has Covid, we shouldn’t have a debate,” Biden told reporters traveling with him on his campaign tour. Trump holds on to the duel regardless of his infection. “I’m looking forward to the debate on Thursday evening, October 15, in Miami,” Trump wrote on Tuesday on the short message service Twitter. “It is going to be great!”

The virus continues to spread in the close circle of Trump: Stephen Miller, senior adviser to the White House, tested positive for the virus on Tuesday. “I’ve been working from home in self-isolation for the past five days and been getting negative tests every day until yesterday,” Miller said. “Today I tested positive for Covid-19 and am in quarantine.”

Limited access to Trump.

As a precaution, Trump is working in makeshift office space in the residence and not in the Oval Office, government officials said. Only four executives were given personal access to the president. In addition to Miller, Trump’s close advisor Hope Hicks, White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany, Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien and Republican Senators Mike Lee, Thom Tillis and Ron Johnson are also infected.

Back in the election campaign – without a mask.

According to his doctor, Trump’s condition remained good after his return from the hospital to the White House. Trump did not report any corona symptoms to the medical team, said personal physician Sean Conley. The 74-year-old’s values ​​are stable.

His blood has an oxygen saturation level between 95 and 97 percent. “Overall, he’s still doing extremely well,” said Conley.

Trump was released on Monday evening after three days in the Walter Reed Military Hospital and was flown back to the White House in the Presidential Helicopter Marine One. There he pulled down the face mask and was – still without a mask – surrounded by employees inside the building, although he is still contagious.

Twitter hides corona tweet behind a warning.

In a video on Monday night, he called on Americans not to be afraid of the virus. “We will defeat it.” Now he followed up in a tweet and compared the virus with the normal flu. “The flu season is coming! Many people, sometimes more than 100,000, die from the flu every year, despite the vaccination. Are we going to lock our country down?

No, we have learned to live with it, just as we learn to live with Covid , much less fatal in many populations, “wrote Trump.

Twitter marked the tweet and hid it behind a warning notice. The online platform wrote that Trump’s tweet violated the guidelines for disseminating misleading and potentially harmful information about Covid-19. However, users can read the message with one click.

White House: Trump is Corona “survivor”

Experts also immediately rejected the president’s statements and emphasized that the corona pandemic is much more dangerous than the annual flu waves. The CDC estimates that between 12,000 and 61,000 people have died from the flu every year since 2010. More than 210,000 people have already died in the USA this year as a result of a corona infection, the highest number worldwide.

Trump versus Biden – who is ahead?

Despite the uncertainty about the outcome of Trump’s Covid-19 illness, the White House is already daring to make predictions about his appearance in the next TV debate against challenger Biden. Spokeswoman Alyssa Farah told Fox News that she expected Trump to have a “new mentality” on the coronavirus. He has already lost friends to the virus and mourned with the Americans. “But now he comes as a survivor himself. And I think you will hear that in this debate.”

According to personal physician, Trump has not yet over the mountain.

On the other hand, Trump’s personal physician Conley said shortly before the US President was released from the clinic that Trump would not be over the mountain for a week. The president meets all the medical criteria for a discharge.

Trump stops negotiations on aid package.

A number of drugs have been administered to the US President, including an antibody drug that is still experimental. Trump’s personal physician Conley did not say whether Trump should get any more medication. In the White House, however, there will be “world-class medical care” for the president 24 hours a day.

Generals in quarantine.

Meanwhile, several high-ranking generals, including Chief of Staff Mark Milley, have also been quarantined as a precautionary measure due to corona contact, according to media reports. They worked from home until further notice, reported among other things by the CNN broadcaster and several US newspapers. The Ministry of Defense then stated that those affected had been tested for possible infection.

So far, none of them, including leaders of the armed forces, have had symptoms of illness. The military is still ready for action, especially since the command of the armed forces can also do their service in an “alternative workplace”.

According to media reports, the generals had attended meetings at the Pentagon last week, at which the Deputy Chief of the Coast Guard, Admiral Charles Ray, was also present. According to the Coast Guard, a test for the corona virus at Ray was positive on Monday. He had been tested after experiencing mild symptoms over the weekend, it said.
