KEY POINTS

  • Trump is hospitalized at Walter Reed where he is being treated for COVID-19
  • 11 people close to him have tested positive
  • The latest person to announce a positive test is press secretary Kayleigh McEnany

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.

Recalls, additions to FDA’s Do Not Use hand sanitizer list

Weakness, ‘toxic’ methanol and packaging that includes Barbie, Hot Wheels and Minions put 14 hand sanitizers on FDA’s Do Not Use list over the last two and a half weeks.

Two hand sanitizers on the list have been recalled over the last week.

The FDA’s list started in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic with hand sanitizers from Mexico that tested positive for methanol, which the FDA terms as “toxic” if either ingested or rubbed into the skin, or were believed to be made in the same facility as those with methanol.

Now, it includes hand sanitizers from numerous countries that test as being “subpotent” (too weak) and having 1-propanol or being believed to be made in the same place as those hand sanitizers.

Or having Paw Patrol packaging.

Updates to the Do Not Use list

The FDA said C&G Laboratorios’ Hand Sanitizer Disinfectant Gel tested positive for methanol,

Trump tests positive for the coronavirus, joining a growing list of world leaders

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Like Trump, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson initially played down the virus’s severity. But his tone changed after the then 55-year-old spent several days in intensive care in April following his diagnosis of covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. His infection could have “gone either way,” Johnson said.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has been a high-profile detractor of the virus, which he has called a “little cold.” He tested positive for the virus in July and reportedly recovered well after several weeks of a mild infection. Bolsonaro repeatedly flouted health recommendations before contracting the coronavirus — and even afterward, an analysis by The Washington Post found.

Brazil ranks third in the world for the highest number of coronavirus infections and second for covid-19 fatalities, trailing the United States.

Trump joins list of world leaders who have tested positive for COVID-19

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus, the president announced in a tweet overnight. They are among more than 34 million people worldwide who have tested positive for COVID-19, and join a group of world leaders who have had the virus. 

The president’s diagnosis sparked a flurry of well-wishes from other officials – some of whom have battled coronavirus themselves.

“My best wishes to President Trump and the First Lady,” tweeted British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who became the first world leader confirmed to have the illness back in March. “Hope they both have a speedy recovery from coronavirus.”

When Johnson was initially diagnosed he said he was feeling okay. But within days, doctors said – against Johnson’s wishes – that he should go to the hospital, CBS News foreign correspondent Charlie D’Agata reports. The prime minister was rushed to the hospital and
