Trump: Covid-19 diagnosis is a ‘blessing from God’

American president Donald Trump is calling his coronavirus infection a “blessing from God” after making his return to the Oval Office.

He spent three nights in hospital but was back in the White House by last week Tuesday morning, where he has been continuing his recovery.

A memo from the White House on Thursday night announced that the President had completed his course of therapy and been given the green light to return to public engagements from Saturday, just over a week after he was diagnosed. 

Trump has been using videos to update his social media followers on his recovery. 

In one video posted to Twitter after his return to the Oval Office, he said he was feeling “great”.

“I think this was a blessing from God, that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise. I caught it, I heard about this drug, I said let me take it. It was my suggestion,”

At least 20 of Trump’s inner circle and White House staffers have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the last week or so. 

They include First Lady Melania Trump, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and adviser Stephen Miller. 

Pastor Greg Laurie is among the people who may have caught Covid-19 at a recent Rose Garden event at the White House. 

Laure said on Thursday that he was “feeling good”. 

Trump’s first event since being diagnosed with COVID-19:

Donald Trump held his first public event since being diagnosed with COVID-19, as the United States president seeks to show the public he is fit to resume campaigning ahead of the November 3 elections.

Trump was addressing a crowd of a few hundred cheering supporters Saturday afternoon from a White House balcony, where he spoke about “law and order” issues in the country.

“I’m honoured to welcome you. We call this a peaceful protest in the White House in support of the incredible men and women of law enforcement and all of the people that work so well with us,”

Trump said.

The speech came after White House physician Sean Conley said the president could once again hold public events as of Saturday, 10 days after he tested positive for COVID-19.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says people infected with COVID-19 can see others 10 days after their symptoms first appeared, provided their symptoms are improving and they have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of medication,
