    Donald Trump has started undergoing treatment for Covid-19 symptoms after he was flown to hospital as a “precaution” on Friday night. White House physician Dr Sean P. Conley said that the president “was doing very well”, did not need supplemental oxygen, and had received a first dose of Remdesivir, an intravenous antiviral drug.  It comes as a source told CNN that Mr Trump had a fever and was “struggling to breathe”. The US president announced his Covid-19 diagnosis in a tweet in the early hours of Friday, following a positive test from one of his closest aides. Mr Trump, who along with wife Melania has tested positive for Covid-19, was flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre in Bethesda, Maryland, for a “few days”, his press secretary said. “I think I’m doing very well, but we’re going to make sure that things work out,” Mr. Trump said in an 18-second video, filmed in the White House shortly before his departure for the hospital. “The first lady is doing very well,” Mr. Trump added. On Friday evening Mr Trump walked unaided from the White House to a waiting helicopter before being flown to the hospital. The president ha already been given another experimental treatment of synthetic antibodies for Covid-19, his doctor said.
