HE'S BACK: Pres Trump Released From Walter Reed After Receiving COVID-19 Treatment; COVID-Positive Senator Says He'll Wear 'moon suit' To Vote For SCOTUS Nominee, and Other C-Virus Updates

Trump released from Walter Reed after receiving COVID-19 treatment:
President Trump was released from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and returned to the White House on Monday, following three days of treatment for the coronavirus.
Trump walked out the facility’s front door and gave a thumbs up as he departed Bethesda, Maryland, the same way as he arrived, headed for the Marine One helicopter.
“He’s back,” Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s physician, told reporters at a press conference outside the hospital on Monday afternoon.
Conley said Trump, 74, was “back to his old self” but “may not be entirely out of the woods” given his experimental treatment for the virus that’s infected 7.4 million Americans and killed 210,000 since March.
Trump received experimental “polyclonal antibodies” and oxygen at the White House on Friday. At the hospital, he received doses of the antiviral drug remdesivir and the steroid dexamethasone. --->READ MORE HERE

COVID-positive senator says he'll wear 'moon suit' to vote for Supreme Court nominee:
Shuttered by COVID-19 infections, the Republican-led Senate is refusing to delay confirmation of President Donald Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court. They are even willing to make special arrangements so sick senators can vote for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, and Democrats appear powerless to stop them.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said Monday that he’ll go to the Capitol “in a moon suit” to vote if he’s still testing positive for the coronavirus, which has killed more than 209,000 Americans and infected millions.
The push to put conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett on the high court before Nov. 3 is like nothing seen in U.S. history so close to a presidential election. Trump’s nomination of Barrett in a Rose Garden ceremony apparently became ground zero for the infections now gripping the president, his White House and its Senate allies. Three GOP senators, including Johnson, have now tested positive for the virus and several more are quarantined at home - denying Republicans a functioning majority. --->READ MORE HERE
