More than a dozen people close to President Donald Trump had tested positive for coronavirus as of Monday as the president recovered at Walter Reed National Military Hospital.
Trump was airlifted to the hospital Friday, suffering from fever and dropping blood oxygen levels. He has been treated with an experimental antibody cocktail, the antiviral drug Remdesivir and the steroid dexamethasone, which generally is given only in severe cases. Early in the pandemic, he dosed himself with the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, which since has proved dangerous to some patients and ineffective against the virus.
At least 11 people who have been in close contact with Trump in recent days have tested positive for the virus.
