Ahead of Florida rally, United States of America’s President Donald Trump claimed that he was “immune” to the coronavirus after recovering from Covid-19.
The President also tweeted: “A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!”
Twitter later flagged the tweet as a violation of its rules forbidding the spread of “misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”
According to reports, in an interview with Fox News, Trump said he felt “fantastically” and was ready to “get out of the basement”.
“It seems like I’m immune, so I can go way out of a basement, which I would have done anyway,” Trump told the channel. “It looks like I am immune for I don’t know, maybe a long time or maybe a short time…It could be a life time, nobody really knows but I am immune.” Studies have yet to establish whether being infected with Covid-19 leads to future immunity.
Trump is expected to make his first public appearance on the campaign trail since his diagnosis at a rally in Florida today.
