U.S. President Donald Trump has tested negative for COVID-19 and he is not infectious to others, the White House physician said on Monday, 10 days after Trump announced he had contracted the coronavirus.
Trump returned to the campaign trail on Monday for the first time since he announced his COVID-19 diagnosis, touting his management of the pandemic as opinion polls showed him losing more ground to Democratic rival Joe Biden.
The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced that the planned second debate between Trump and Joe Biden was canceled after Trump declined to do a virtual debate, despite concerns over his COVID-19 diagnosis.
On October 2, Trump revealed that he and his wife Melania had tested positive for COVID-19 after a close aide contracted the coronavirus. He was admitted to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center the same day, but he returned to the White House after spending three nights at the hospital.
