First Lady Melania Trump thanked supporters today for their show of solidarity with her and President Trump in light of their coronavirus diagnosis.
She said that her "family is grateful for all of the prayers & support!" Mrs. Trump said that she is feeling well and plans to continue resting at home.
She and President Trump were diagnosed with COVID-19 in the early morning hours Friday, when it was revealed that both had contracted the illness that has swept the nation since earlier this winter.
The president remains at Walter Reed Medical Center, where he has been undergoing treatment since Friday. Trump's medical team has put him on a course of the anti-viral drug Remdesivir, and other treatments have been explored as well. He has also been taking vitamin D, melatonin, zinc, and aspirin. He also took a dose of a monoclonal antibody cocktail, called REGN-COV2.
After Trump was admitted to Walter Reed, supporters lined the road outside the Bethesda facility to show their support and admiration for the American president. Supporters waved flags, honked their horns, and stood in solidarity with the president, who had been hosting campaign rallies over the past few months.
Though the president is unable to continue his hectic schedule of appearances, his supporters came to him. Trump came out to wave hello to the crowd on Sunday.
He stated that he was grateful for the support from constituents.
The next presidential debate between presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled for October 15, and no plans have yet been made to alter that plan.
Doctors have said that Trump may be released from the hospital as early as Monday, but the information as to where he will continue recuperating from the virus that has claimed over 200,000 American lives. There has been much media speculation over the president's condition.
Others on the White House team have contracted coronavirus, beginning on Wednesday when Hope Hicks was diagnosed with the illness. Since then, Kayleigh McEnany and others have reported that they have tested positive as well.
