« Je vais à l’hôpital Walter Reed. Je pense que je vais très bien, mais nous allons nous assurer que les choses se passent bien » les mots de Donal Trump sur une vidéo poster sur twitter peu avant d’être amené au Walter Reed National Military Medical Center à Bethesda, Maryland. Pour “quelques jours”, a déclaré son attaché de presse.
This hospitalization has resulted in the cancellation of the rallies planned as part of the election campaign, the one in Florida on Friday, the one in Wisconsin on Saturday and the one in Arizona on Monday have also been cancelled. However, Mike Pence will be back on the campaign trail.
Trump receives experimental antibody treatment
During his hospitalization at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Trump will receive investigational monoclonal antibody therapy from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc. Regeneron is at the forefront of the development of monoclonal antibody therapy and Donal Trump is in the high-risk range for Covid-19 due to his age and weight.
Regeneron’s cocktail treatment is a mixture of two very potent antibodies that target the coronavirus spike protein. It is currently being tested in several clinical trials in Covid-19 inpatients and in volunteer trials.
