Throughout this global pandemic, more than 8 million Americans have tested positive for COVID-19, one of which is the president of the United States. On Friday, Oct.1, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19. This left Americans wondering how the president would run the country with covid-19 and if the vice president would have to take control.

President Trump was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland and released on Monday, Oct 5. It is unclear whether or not President Trump still has COVID-19 but on Oct. 5 he tweeted, “I feel better than I did 20 years ago!” and that he was feeling very good.  President Trump still performed his duties as president and seems to be in good health and making a strong recovery.

Since the president has been released he participated in the third presidential debate against former vice president Joe Biden. Many other white house officials also tested positive for COVID-19.
