The next debate between US President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, scheduled for October 15, was proposed to be held online. Trump declined to participate in this format of discussion, Reuters reported.
The proposal for virtual debates was put forward by the Presidential Debate Commission. It is assumed that the audience and the presenter will be in one place, and the candidates in two others.
Donald Trump in a telephone conversation with reporters said that he would not accept this option. According to the president, he feels great and is ready to debate.
On October 7, it became known that the American leader was prescribed a cocktail of antiviral antibodies. It is being created by Regeneron. Ancha Baranova, professor at the School of Systems Biology at George Mason University, believes that such drugs are effective, but they are very expensive, since special hybrid cell lines are needed for their production.
Trump’s infection with the coronavirus became known on the morning of October 2. His wife Melania Trump also tested positive for coronavirus. A few days later, the president was found to have antibodies to the infection.
