Trump hails virus treatment, says he's ready to do rallies

U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that he is ready to resume campaign rallies and credited an experimental drug treatment with helping his recovery from COVID-19. More than 210,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus. His doctor said the president had "completed his course of therapy" for the disease.

In a Fox News interview Thursday night, Trump said he wanted to hold a rally in Florida on Saturday "if we have enough time to put it together." He said he might also hold a rally the following night in Pennsylvania. "I feel so good," he told Fox's, Sean Hannity. However, concerns about infection appeared to scramble plans for next week's presidential debate.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says individuals can discontinue isolation ten days after the onset of symptoms, which was Oct. 1, for Trump, according to his doctors.
