American President Donald Trump, who became ill with coronavirus, was given the drug Remdesivir. This was told by the doctor of the head of state Sean Conley.
“I am glad to report that the president is feeling very well, he does not need additional oxygen, but after consulting with specialists, we decided to start therapy with Remdesivir,” RIA Novosti quotes the memorandum that Conley signed.
According to him, Trump has already taken the first dose and is “resting comfortably.”
Earlier, Trump said that he and his wife Melania had confirmed the coronavirus.
Before leaving for the Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Maryland, he published a video message in which he assured that he and First Lady Melania were doing well.
Russian leader Vladimir Putin wished Trump and his wife a speedy recovery, and ex-US President Barack Obama, DPRK leader Kim Jong-un and WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also spoke with words of support.
