Trump has Covid — We discuss what this means with Coronavirus expert Craig Spencer MD

In today’s special episode, Cliff and I talk to NYC emergency room doc Craig Spencer MD about Donald Trump, Melania, favorite Trump aide Hope Hicks, and RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel all being diagnosed with Covid-19. Craig is the Director of Global Health in Emergency Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. He currently divides his time between providing clinical care in New York and working internationally in public health as a board member of Doctors Without Borders USA.

Craig has dealt first-hand with the Coronavirus pandemic in NYC. He walks us through a timetable of when Trump might have been infected with the Coronavirus, when Trump was likely contagious, what the risks are for someone Trump’s age with Trump’s comorbidities, to what degree Trump must now isolate himself from the public, and whether it’s even safe for Trump and Joe Biden to debate in two weeks. Cliff and I then talk about what the diagnosis means for the presidential race, about Trump not even letting Biden knows that he might have been exposed, and more. Lots to discuss.
