  • The Hogan Lovells Government Relations and Public Affairs group is tracking all of the latest developments in the U.S. Congress and relevant news stories. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus and was admitted to Walter Reed Medical Hospital after experiencing shortness of breath and fever. The President’s health continues to be in question after a weekend of conflicting news and information being released by the White House and his team of doctors. The medical team has received significant criticism after admitting to giving a misleading report on Saturday and continue to be evasive in their answers about the President’s test and treatments. The President tweeted Monday that he will be discharged from Walter Reed Monday even though his doctors say he “may not be entirely out of the woods yet.” The news prompted concerns because of the number of risk factors of severe coronavirus symptoms that remain. The White House has become a COVID-19 hotspot and a contact tracing debacle as staff and the White House’s top circles are testing positive. Furthermore, the Vice President, cabinet members, congressional leadership, former Vice President Joe Biden, and even Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett may have now been exposed to the virus through the White House.
