US President Donald Trump has been flown to hospital less than 24 hours after testing positive for coronavirus.
The White House said the decision to transport him to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center was taken “out of an abundance of caution”.
Mr Trump – who had a fever – said early on Friday he and First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for Covid-19.
The White House said he was feeling “fatigued but in good spirits” and was experiencing mild symptoms.
The news comes just over a month before presidential elections, where he will face Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
