President Trump's Positive COVID-19 Test Shakes Up Election, Markets
Sunday 04 October 2020
What does this mean in the near term?
A central issue is how severely Trump is affected by the virus. Medical experts say the 10- to 14-day period following a positive COVID-19 test is the most critical. We should know within 10 days whether he is incapacitated. A mild case would have less impact on the election and markets.
President Trump announced in a tweet shortly before 1:00 a.m. on Friday October 2nd that he and the First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) tested positive for COVID-19. We look at the potential repercussions from this dramatic news in this Q&A.
