Trump test negative for Coronavirus 10 days after

US President Donald Trump has rested negative for Coronavirus 10 days after the he announced he had contracted the deadly disease.

White House physician said Sean Conley said in a memo released to the public on Monday that the President tested negative using a rapid test.

“I can share with you that he tested negative, on consecutive days, using the Abbot BinaxNOW antigen card,” Conley said.

The doctor said the negative determination had taken into account a number of measurements, and not just the rapid test alone. 

"It is important to note that this test was not used in isolation for the determination of the president's current negative status," Conley said. 

"Repeatedly negative antigen tests, taken in context with additional clinical and laboratory data, including viral load, subgenomic RNA, and PCR cycle threshold measurements, as well as ongoing assessment of viral culture data, all indicate a lack of detectable viral replication. 

"The comprehensive data, in concert with the CDC's guidelines for removal of transmission-based precautions, have informed our medical team's assessment that the president is not infectious to others."

Trump mounted the stage Florida for his first campaign rally since being treated for the virus.

The president's physician had already said the president could not spread coronavirus to others before his negative tests. 

Dr. Conley said tests and other measurements “have informed our medical team’s assessment that the president is not infectious to others.”  

Trump is expected to have a busy campaign schedule in the final days leading up to the November 3 election.
