U.S. President Donald Trump is moving to a military hospital for treatment after being diagnosed with COVID-19, a White House official said on Friday, as his administration and election campaign scrambled to adjust to a sad twist in his presidency.
Doctors urged the move so Trump could get immediate care if needed, the official said.
The news came after White House doctor Sean P. Conley wrote that Trump “remains fatigued but in good spirits.”
Trump is at high risk because of his age and weight. He has remained in apparent good health during his time in office but is not known to exercise regularly or to follow a healthy diet.
