On October 6, 2020, Trump left quarantine and his certified care for Covid-19, so that he could continue his duties at the White House. He should have noted the considerable health risk of spreading Covid-19 before making the decision. 

He came into the White House with his mask off even though he had not recovered from Covid. The debate between Biden and Trump has been happening for a while now and ever since Trump got Covid. It’s very hard. His stay in the White House will be quite a challenge, however the President is not failing this re-election. We don’t know if Trump will have a speedy recovery for Corona, but what we do know is that he is getting the best care he needs. 

Trump isn’t taking safety precautions seriously, drastically affecting the White House standards. Recently, around 18 people in the White House got infected due to Trump’s condition. Trump stated “don’t let [the virus] dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives” whereas Biden in contrast, claimed otherwise stating, “Anybody who contracts the virus by essentially saying masks don’t matter, social distancing doesn’t matter, I think is responsible for what happens to them.” It is important to note that if people with Covid-19 are not careful with their health they could get into serious trouble. 

There are many patients of Covid who are upset with what the President decides to do at this time, and they have been given a choice. Whether they choose to stay in the hospital or go home is completely up to them to decide.
