US President Donald Trump, in Wisconsin, declared that that all Americans will get the Coronavirus treatment he received for free. “We’re gonna make, what I had, available to everybody, free. The antibodies, I think the antibodies are the best thing, we’re gonna make it free,” Trump said at his campaign rally in Janesville, Wisconsin.
“This election is a choice between a Trump super recovery and a Biden depression,” Trump added.
Addressing another rally in Muskegon, Michigan, Trump warned that victory of the Democratic candidate in US presidential elections could make the pandemic situation worse in Michigan, as well as the US as a whole. “Democrats would terminate our recovery with a draconian unscientific lockdown like your governor is doing right now,” Trump said, stressing that “Biden will shut down the country, delay the vaccine and prolong the pandemic.”
After being diagnosed positive for Covid-19, Trump resumed his campaign trail earlier this month holding a rally in Sanford, Florida. Trump told his supporters in Florida that “whatever the hell they gave me” was going to be distributed across US hospitals.
On October 2, he was hospitalised with Covid-19 at the Walter Reed Military Medical Centre, after he and his wife Melania had tested positive for the coronavirus. Trump was treated with an experimental antibody cocktail that targets the coronavirus spike protein.
On October 12, White House physician Dr Sean Conley announced that Trump had tested negative for Covid-19 on consecutive days.
First Lady Melania Trump announced that the First Family’s son Barron, 14, had also contracted Covid-19 but exhibited no symptoms and has recently tested negative. “Since Barron is young, his immune system is strong and he was able to easily overcome the virus, like many other young people,” said Trump in Wisconsin. In that light, Trump called for reopening schools in the US.
