How Donald Trump’s battle with coronavirus may impact the US election

Given his tendency to eschew masks and social distancing measures, Donald Trump’s infection with the Covid-19 coronavirus was viewed by many as a case of when rather than if.

The president is being treated at Walter Reed military hospital near Washington D.C. after being transferred from the White House on Saturday, but made a surprise appearance last night when he went on a brief drive to thank supporters.  

In a video released on Twitter shortly before his unexpected foray, Trump thanked the “great patriots” gathering outside the medical facility, adding that he had “learned a lot about Covid” after testing positive last week.
