WA SHINGTON (DPA) 9 OC TO­BER 2020 - US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump said Thurs­day he is hop­ing to hold a cam­paign rally on Satur­day, af­ter the White House doc­tor cleared him for a re­turn to pub­lic events by the week­end.

Trump’s com­ments came dur­ing an in­ter­view with Fox News in the evening, where his raspy voice was re­peat­edly punc­tu­ated by coughs.

“I think I’m the most an­a­lyzed hu­man be­ing in the world right now,” Trump said, adding that he will “prob­a­bly” be tested for the coro­n­avirus on Fri­day.

Ear­lier in the day, White House doc­tor Sean Con­ley cleared Trump for “pub­lic en­gage­ments” by Satur­day.

Con­ley’s state­ment did not say if the pres­i­dent has tested neg­a­tive for the virus, or if Trump plans to test neg­a­tive be­fore at­tend­ing pub­lic events.

Ac­cord­ing to the Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Preven­tion, peo­ple in­fected with the coro­n­avirus are sup­posed to iso­late for at least 10 days from the on­set of symp­toms and up to 20 days for more se­vere cases.

Satur­day will mark ten days since Trump was di­ag­nosed with the virus, Con­ley said.
