The US President Has Coronavirus – level 1

09-10-2020 15:00

The US president Donald Trump and his wife Melania have the coronavirus.

The news comes last week. Trump is feeling good. His wife is feeling good, too. They must stay in quarantine. It means that they must keep away from people. They can meet people when they are healthy again.

However, the situation changes. A helicopter takes Trump to a hospital. Trump has a fever.

Doctors say that Trump’s situation is not serious. However, doctors want to have everything under control. Trump is 74 years old. He is obese. COVID-19 can be more dangerous for him.

People vote for a new US president next month. Donald Trump is one of the candidates. The second candidate is Joe Biden.

Difficult words: fever (a high body temperature), obese (fat), candidate (a person who other people choose for a job).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
