Regeneron’s Unapproved Antibody Drug Praised as Trump Recovers

Those meeting with Trump are required to wear full personal protective gear to minimize their risk.

Trump could have received his briefings elsewhere in the complex, but the president believed it was important that he be seen working from the Oval, according to a White House official who was not authorized to comment publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The president has also begun pondering a resumption of travel and is considering hitting the road next week before the scheduled October 15 presidential debate in Miami.

White House officials are confident that Trump will be healthy enough to take part in the US presidential debate, and are exploring the prospect of travel earlier depending on the course of his recovery.

One option the campaign is weighing involves visits to Pennsylvania Monday and Michigan Tuesday and another campaign visit to Florida.

Another would be for the president to restart travel with the debate and hold a campaign event the following day, according to a campaign official who was not authorized to comment publicly.

Elsewhere in the government, the virus is threatening the top ranks of the US military.

The assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Gary L. Thomas, tested positive for the coronavirus, days after he and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff were in a Pentagon meeting with a Coast Guard leader who was infected with the virus, the service confirmed Wednesday.

Thomas attended a meeting of the Joint Chiefs on Friday. The nation’s top military leaders — including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, and the Vice-Chairman, Gen. John Hyten — are in quarantine after exposure at that meeting to Adm. Charles W. Ray, the vice commandant of the Coast Guard, who has since tested positive.

Amid the national public health crisis, a personal one, and warning flares from leading economists that the virus-scarred economy badly needs stimulus, Trump pushed out about 60 tweets by early evening praising supporters and eviscerating his opponents.

While Trump continues to minimize the threat of the virus, more aides have been testing positive — including one of his closest advisers, Stephen Miller, who was diagnosed Tuesday.

All told, more than a dozen White House staffers have tested positive.

Nonetheless, Trump pushed out video of South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem speaking of her decision to resist Covid-19 restrictions in her state.

He also thanked a supporter who tweeted she “would wade through a sea of Covidinfested water to vote for President Trump on November 3rd."
