US President Donald Trump returned to work in his Oval Office on Wednesday, despite accusations for being too careless with the safety of his employees. Trump was tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday and was hospitalized for three days.

Doctor: ‘President has no symptoms for 24 hours’

Trump has been back in the White House since Monday. A White House spokesman confirms American media that the president was back in office for the first time on Wednesday. Trump is said to have been briefed on Hurricane Delta, which is currently heading to the Gulf of Mexico, and on the negotiations for an economic support package.

According to the spokesman, the employees of the president can do their job in a safe way. “We can disinfect regularly,” he says.

Trump was previously accused of being too careless with the safety of the people around him. For example, he briefly left the hospital where he was staying on Sunday to allow himself to be driven around and to wave to supporters. At that time there were security guards in the car with him. He also immediately took off his mouth mask upon arrival at the White House on Monday.

White House physician Sean Conley announced earlier in the day that the president would have had no symptoms of the coronavirus for 24 hours. He would also have been fever free for more than four days.

It is not yet known whether this means that the second debate in the run-up to the presidential election on November 3 can continue. The debate is scheduled for October 15.

In a video message Trump posted on Twitter on Wednesday, he promises anyone who has become ill from the corona virus free of charge with the experimental drug Regeneron. He says it is a “blessing from God” that he received corona, otherwise he would never have heard of this medicine.

The Regeneron treatment (official name REGN-COV2) is a so-called cocktail of two antibodies made in a lab. Research into the cocktail began in June. It is currently in phase three, testing the safety of a drug on larger groups of people. Scientists call the treatment “promising”. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not yet officially approved the experimental therapy.

According to Trump, hundreds of thousands of doses are available to be distributed quickly, he wants to use the army to do this. “Everyone should get the same treatment as I do. If you are in the hospital, you will get it for free.”

Trump also acknowledged that a vaccine against the coronavirus is unlikely to be available before the election, despite his promise that it would.
