President Trump jokingly told a recovered COVID-19 patient during a White House meeting on Tuesday to “stay away” from him after she said she felt about “85” percent recovered.
“The first few days I just had a really bad headache, fever,” a woman said during a White House event for recovered coronavirus patients. “It was the second week the respiratory problems [began].”
“I am negative now,” she told the president.
“How long did it take?” Trump asked the woman.
“Over a month,” she said.
“Over a month!” Trump exclaimed. “How are you now?”
“I’m great,” the woman responded.
“Would you say 100%?” Trump asked.
“I would say 85,” the woman replied.
“Stay away from me, please,” Trump said, prompting laughter.
“Stay away! Keep her away!” he added.
