Live updates: Trump hospitalized after positive coronavirus test - The Washington Post 1President Trump has received two experimental coronavirus treatments, according to his physician: an “antibody cocktail” and remdesivir.

Other lowlights:

  • “Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!” Trump tweeted from the hospital shortly before midnight. His physician said in a statement late Friday that “the President is doing very well” and “is not requiring any supplemental oxygen.”
  • Kellyanne Conway, a former senior adviser to Trump, said Friday that she tested positive for the virus, just days after attending a Rose Garden event announcing Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court. At least a half-dozen people who were at the event have confirmed infections, including Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and University of Notre Dame President John I. Jenkins.
  • Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and top White House aide Hope Hicks have also tested positive for the virus.
  • Vice President Pence, who has tested negative for the virus, will lead a White House coronavirus task force conference call on Saturday afternoon, according to his office.
  • Trump has no public events scheduled on Saturday; he will spend several days at Walter Reed “out of an abundance of caution,” the White House said.
  • Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer, noting that both Lee and Tillis are members of the Judiciary Committee that is scheduled to hold a hearing on the Barrett nomination, asked that the confirmation hearing be delayed.
