7 officials in 24 hours … Corona hits the White House...

I wrote – Rana Osama:

US President Donald was transferred to the “Red Walter” Military Hospital early Friday, less than 24 hours after he was diagnosed with the new Corona virus, leaving the country in deep crisis, while the circle of infected people who had contact with him from his current and former aides expanded inside the White House.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, it was announced that the results of the Corona tests of both former White House adviser Killian Conway and the US President’s campaign manager, Bill Steepen, were positive, followed by a positive diagnosis of two senators who attended the announcement of Trump’s nomination for the Supreme Court at the weekend. The past, and senior Trump advisor Hope Hicks, on Thursday.

The matter that CNN prepared in an analysis on its website, Saturday, is a remarkably rapid escalation of the virus threat – which Trump has always downplayed – from just an infection that caused mild symptoms to the US president to a fever that necessitated his airlift to hospital. Meanwhile, the epidemic is spreading like wildfire, hitting his government and campaign team.


Shortly before midnight, Trump’s doctor, Dr. Sean Connelly, said in a statement issued by the White House that the US President’s condition was “very good and he does not need any additional oxygen.” Recovering in some Corona patients. He has completed his first dose and is currently resting, “according to the statement.

Conley added that he recommended the transfer of Trump from the White House to “Walter Reed” earlier Friday, after consulting with specialists from “Walter Reed” and “Johns Hopkins” universities.

In a tweet from inside the hospital, on Saturday, Trump said, “Things are going well … I think! Thanks everyone. With my love !!!”

‘The most dangerous health threat’

According to “CNN”, Trump’s diagnosis of Covid 19 – after which he was transferred to “Walter Reed”, where the White House said he plans to stay and work in it during the “next few days” – represents the most serious health threat known to the American presidency since the assassination of the President The former Ronald Reagan in 1981.

The decision to transfer Trump to the hospital, according to the American Network, also represents a “sharp turnaround” of what was stated in Conley’s statement early Friday, when he confirmed for the first time that Trump and first lady Melania had contracted Covid 19, and said that the couple will stay in the White House during the period of recovery.

Wearing a suit and muzzle, Trump, 74, waved to reporters without answering any questions, as he walked unaided down the South Lawn of the White House to Marine One, the presidential helicopter that airlifted him to hospital. Dr. Jonathan Rayner, a medical analyst at CNN and a professor at George Washington University, said that Trump left for Walter Reed after receiving a dose of the experimental medical treatment “Regeneron”, in a move that may indicate a high level of anxiety among his physicians treating.

Although White House employees claimed that the move was taken “out of extreme caution,” there are many unanswered questions about Trump’s case, partly due to the White House’s persistent lack of transparency and the doctors’ failure to inform the media about his condition, which is a protocol. Known and followed when former US presidents faced health concerns.


Meanwhile, White House officials assert that Trump has not transferred power to Vice President Mike Pence, as is sometimes customary when the president is ill or scheduled to undergo a medical procedure that may require him to be sedated.

Trump posted a short video clip, recorded, on Twitter, thanking his supporters for their good wishes for a speedy recovery upon his arrival at Walter Reed before 6:30 pm Friday (local time).

While Melania Trump remained in the White House with a mild cough and headache, the US presidential doctor announced.

However, her husband’s age (President Donald Trump), his gender, and the fact that he suffers from clinical obesity (overweight) increases his risk of complications from Covid 19. It is not clear exactly when the spouses were subjected to corona tests, and for how long they could transmit the infection to others .

The incubation period for the virus is estimated between 5 and 14 days, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the agency’s guidelines state that anyone infected with the virus should be subject to a 14-day quarantine.

A ‘reckless approach’

The American Network indicated that Trump was tested positive for Corona days after he went to a fundraising campaign in Bedminster, New Jersey on Thursday evening, despite his knowledge that the results of the test of Hope Hicks, one of his senior aides who traveled with him throughout the week, came positive, in the past in his recklessness that he showed Throughout the epidemic.

Trump not only traveled earlier this week to the first presidential debate with his Democratic rival, Joe Biden, who tested negative on Friday, but also attended several election rallies over the past week.

There are increasingly disturbing indications of the Corona outbreak in the White House, especially with the events that took place last Saturday, when Trump and the first lady hosted a large crowd in the rose garden; Where the US President announced the nomination of Judge Amy Connie Barrett to the Supreme Court.


The most dangerous thing, according to CNN, is that these events were devoid of any preventive measures against Corona; There were no social distancing between the guests and only a few wore masks. At least 7 people have tested positive, including Trump and his wife Melania. The University of Notre Dame President Reverend John Jenkins, Killian Conway, Republican Senator Mike Lee of Utah and Tom Tillis of North Carolina, who were sitting close together, also tested positive.

In a video of me, he is seen hugging the other attendees. Barrett and her husband contracted the virus earlier this summer and recovered, “CNN” quoted three informed sources as saying.

Conway, Stephen and Hicks participated in Trump’s preparations for his debate with Biden last Tuesday. Coronavirus symptoms can appear within 2 to 14 days of infection, but they often develop within 4 to 5 days.

A ‘credibility gap’

The dearth of information about Trump’s risk of contracting COVID-19 has been complicated by the fact that he and his allies have downplayed the risks of Corona since the pandemic reached the United States.

Trump and members of his administration have already faced a large credibility gap due to their extensive history of providing false or misleading information on a variety of topics over the past four years, including the severity of the pandemic and its public health risks.

The data on Trump’s condition changed a lot over the course of Friday – a lot of early information about his “good condition” was reported by the media first and then confirmed by the White House, underlining the lack of transparency from this administration.

Friday morning, as the White House tried to show things were fine, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows described Trump as energetic. Later in the day, however, Conley, the doctor who was closely involved in Trump’s care, wrote in a statement that he was “tired”. CNN has learned from another source that the US President is suffering from a fever for most of the day.


In a later statement Friday afternoon, Conley said that Trump had obtained the antibody combination “regeneron”, an experimental drug that has not yet been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Trump’s doctor also said he takes zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and aspirin daily.

In a few hours, Trump turned to Walter Reed.

Dr. Leonard Schleifer, CEO of the biotechnology company “Regeneron”, told the US network that Trump would have had an experimental treatment with antibodies made by his company to help boost the immune system, which he said is now in a “race” against the virus.

Shleifer told CNN: “If the virus defeats (against Trump), the consequences could be dire, obviously.”

And he warned that Trump “is in a high-risk stage for several reasons, such as aging, and if he is given antibodies, we hope that we give his immune system a sufficient boost so that he can win (this battle against the epidemic) and recover fully.”
