Washington, District of Columbia: United States President Donald Trump returns to the White House on Monday, October 5th, 2020 after spending a few days receiving treatment for COVID-19 at military medical center.

United States President Donald Trump left from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center where he was receiving an unprecedented level of care for COVID-19.

Earlier on Monday, his doctor, Navy Cmdr. Sean Conley, said that the president remains contagious and would not be fully “out of the woods” for another week but that Trump had met or exceeded standards for discharge from the hospital.

Landing Monday night at the White House on Marine One, United States President Donald Trump gingerly climbed the South Portico steps, removed his mask and declared, “I feel good.”

United States President Donald Trump gave a double thumbs-up to the departing helicopter from the portico terrace, where aides had arranged American flags for the sunset occasion.

United States President Donald Trump entered the White House, where aides were visible milling about the Blue Room, without wearing a face covering.

Afterwards, United States President Donald Trump spoke about COVID-19 and returning to the White House.

United States President Donald Trump is expected to continue his recovery at the White House, where the reach of the outbreak that has infected the highest levels of the U.S. government is still being uncovered.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, those with mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 can be contagious for as many as – and should isolate for at least – 10 days.

Just before 1:00 a.m. ET on Friday, October 2nd, 2020, United States President Donald Trump announced that he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19, after White House adviser Hope Hicks also tested positive.

Since then, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany and director of Oval Office Operations David Luna have also tested positive.

The latest numbers regarding COVID-19 said that the virus had infected about 7.5 million Americans, leaving more than 210,000 dead and millions more unemployed.

The United States has less than 5% of the globe’s population but more than 20% of the reported deaths.
