US president Donald Trump has had his health monitored over the weekend after testing positive for Covid-19. His oxygen levels have since dropped twice and he received a steroid that is reserved for very serious cases. People have however questioned the seriousness of his illness as Doctors had stated he could leave hospital soon.
He also made a public appearance in a drive-past to greet supporters, drawing criticism. According to Hakeem Jeffries, chairman of the Democrats in the US House of Representatives. “more than 205,000 Americans are dead. We need leadership. Not photo ops.”
However, Mr Trump sought to project an image of strength, tweeting images of himself appearing to work from the hospital and a video message teasing his surprise drive past.
