Trump Returns to Campaigning; Doctor Says He is 'No Longer Contagious'

Summary from the AllSides News Team

President Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail by holding an event at the White House Saturday, just over a week since he tested positive for the virus. Trump spoke from a balcony to several hundred supporters, saying he was "feeling great." On Saturday evening, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said Trump was no longer considered a transmission risk to others, but didn’t say whether Trump has tested negative for the virus yet. Conley said diagnostic tests show there is “no longer evidence of actively replicating virus.” Coverage from right-rated outlets tended to focus on Conley's memo saying that Trump was not contagious. Some coverage from left-rated outlets framed Conley's statement as false; other voices from the left speculate that the Saturday White House event may cause another virus outbreak.
