Trump will be staying at the hospital for the "next few days" and will undergo treatment for COVID-19, the White House reported.

Earlier in October 2019, Canada had announced a freeze on issuing of export permits of military shipments to Turkey.

'It seems very strange to us. It's very strange that this caravan leaves on the eve of the election in the United States,' the Mexican President said.

Reports say masks will still not be mandatory at the White House, describing them as "a personal choice". And this is despite overwhelming evidence that they help to stop the spread.

US President Donald Trump's testing positive for the coronavirus has cast a spotlight on Vice-President Mike Pence.
