It is the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. It is recognized as the largest and most famous institution in the United States.
The president of the United States, Donald Trump, took a helicopter this Friday to a military hospital as a “precaution” after confirming that he was infected with the coronavirus.
“President Trump remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms and has been working all day. As a precaution and on the recommendation of his doctor and experts, the president will work from the presidential offices of Walter Reed (hospital) for the next few days,” White House spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany said in a statement.
The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) is a prestigious institution in the United States. It is even known as the “largest and most famous in the country.”
“Those who walk through our doors come to heal, stay healthy, help others, teach the next generation, practice quality medicine and participate in cutting-edge clinical research, “highlights the military hospital page.
As they explain, the center is the combined legacy of the National Naval Medical Center and the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, two “iconic medical facilities”.
“As the leading military academic health center and a world leader in military readiness, we are committed to providing innovative and extraordinary patient-centered care. Our patients are at the center of everything we do “, they highlight.
The place has a staff of around 7,000 professionals dedicated to providing top quality medical care within an integrated health system.
The decision to transfer Trump came after the president’s doctor in the White House, Sean Conley, explained that the president was administered eight-gram doses of the experimental cocktail of antibodies from the pharmaceutical company Regeneron.
In addition, the president took “zinc, vitamin D, famotidine” -a medicine to treat ulcers or gastric reflux-, melatonin (a hormone to treat sleep disorders) and a daily aspirin, the doctor said.
The first lady, Melania Trump, who also tested positive, “is still fine, with only a mild cough and headache, and the rest of the (Trump) family is fine and today they tested negative for SARS-CoV-2. “concluded the doctor.
The 74-year-old president meets several of the risk factors for developing more serious symptoms of COVID-19, due to his age, gender and obesity.
