He also expressed happiness at knowing that the other staff members who had contracted the disease in the Vice President Secretariat had also recovered from Coronavirus.

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has credited his speedy recovery from Coronavirus to his physical fitness, mental tenacity and desi food. In a long blog posted from his facebook account, the Vice President said that he firmly believed that it was his physical fitness and strict adherence to traditional food which ensured his recovery from the disease despite his old age and him being a diabetes patient.

“I could overcome COVID-19 infection because of my physical fitness, mental tenacity, regular physical exercise like walking and yoga, apart from eating only desi (traditional) food,” the Vice President wrote in his blog. He also said that he always preferred to eat traditional food and continued the practice during the quarantine period

House Speaker Pelosi unveils 25th Amendment bid, questions President Trump’s fitness

The bill would set up a commission to assess the president’s ability to lead the country and ensure a continuity of government. It comes one year after Pelosi’s House launched impeachment proceedings against Trump.“This is not about President Donald Trump — he will face the judgment of the voters,” Pelosi said at a press conference at the Capitol.Just weeks before the Nov. 3 election, with no hopes of the bill becoming law, the rollout was quickly dismissed as a stunt by Trump’s team and top allies.“It’s an … Read More

Regeneron Asks FDA for Emergency Use Authorization of Coronavirus Therapy Used to Treat President Trump | Health News

Regeneron announced Wednesday night that it has asked the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use authorization for the experimental coronavirus antibody therapy used to treat President Donald Trump after he tested positive for the virus.

The biotechnology company said in a statement that it made that emergency use request for its REGN-COV2 investigational antibody combination for COVID-19.

Enough doses are currently available for 50,000 coronavirus patients, and the company expects to have 300,000 doses within the next several months.

Donald Trump, M.D.: How the President Shapes His Treatment

President Donald Trump didn’t want to go to the hospital in the first place. Trump was admitted only after Chief of Staff Mark Meadows insisted he leave the White House when he spiked a fever Friday morning, was coughing and his blood oxygen level threatened to dip dangerously low, say two current White House officials. All along, Trump’s been a challenging patient, insisting on shaping the course of his care as well as stage managing how his health is projected to the public.

After being shuttled to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center by helicopter on Friday evening, Trump pressed to be sent home all weekend. He pushed his doctors to find a way to administer back at the White House the aggressive therapies he’s been receiving. On Monday, he announced his hospital discharge on Twitter hours before it happened, a tactic he’s often used to ram through a

Trump Live Updates: In Flurry of Activity, President Tries to Present an Image of Strength

Most people returning home from a stay in the hospital — especially people struggling with Covid-19 — use the time to rest and recuperate.

But if Tuesday was any indication, President Trump plans no such thing. The day was a blur of tweets and retweets (25 by dinnertime): attacks, major policy pronouncements and assurances to his followers that he was “FEELING GREAT!”

He ordered his aides to cut off negotiations with Democrats in Congress on the emergency rescue package for an economy pummeled by Covid-19 and urged Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, to push ahead with his nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. He mocked “Fake Polls” that showed former Vice President Joseph R.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine wishes President Trump would wear a mask more

COLUMBUS – President Donald Trump’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis proves frequent testing isn’t a substitute for wearing a mask, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said Tuesday.

“I wish the president would wear the mask more,” DeWine told reporters. “I wish he’d wear it all the time when he was in public. I said that before he had the coronavirus.”

Trump revealed early Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19 and then spent three days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. He returned to the White House Monday, tweeting “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”

DeWine said Ohioans should not be afraid of the virus, but they should not discount it either.

“Even the leader of our great country can get the virus,” DeWine said. “It can happen to anyone. No one is immune.” 

When DeWine met Trump on Air Force One before a Dayton rally last

Fauci warns president may relapse as deaths could double

CLOSE

President Donald Trump returned to the White House after three days at Walter Reed. He removed his mask on the steps of the balcony.

USA TODAY

President Donald Trump rolled out of Walter Reed hospital confidently urging the nation not to fear the coronavirus despite experts warning the U.S. death toll, at more than 210,000, could almost double by year’s end.

Experts also warn that the commander-in-chief himself may not have seen the worst of the virus just yet.

“Don’t be afraid of Covid,” Trump tweeted hours before his release Monday following a three-day hospital stay. “Don’t let it dominate your life.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert who for months has exhorted the nation to wear masks and social distance, told CNN that, while not likely, Trump could still face “a reversal – meaning, going in the wrong direction and get into trouble.”
