His doctor said he “remains fatigued” but is in “good spirits”.

Mr Trump has reportedly been injected with an experimental antibody cocktail of drugs and has taken vitamins and an aspirin.

The news of Mr Trump’s positive coronavirus test came just a month before the US presidential election is set to take place.

President Trump is also scheduled to appear in his second election debate against his competitor Joe Biden in less than two weeks.

It is not clear yet how his coronavirus diagnosis may affect the US presidential election.
