Next Presidential debate will be virtual as Trump battles Covid-19


The President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, announced last week, after his first debate with Joe Biden, that he tested positive for the Coronavirus. He was hospitalised from Monday to Friday. His doctor also claimed that he is recovering fine.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines says people who test positive for COVID 19 should be isolated for 10 days and 20 days in more chronic cases.

The commission on Presidential Debates revealed that the next presidential debate will be virtual. The debate is set for Thursday 15th of October. The debate will take place in town hall style but President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, the 2020 presidential nominees will participate remotely and virtually. The moderator of the debate Steve Scully of C-Span will be located at the venue previously prepared to host the debate: Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami.

Earlier Biden said the debates might not take place if Trump was still ill, saying:

“I don’t know what exactly the rules are gonna be and I’m not sure that what President Trump is all about now – I don’t know what is status is, I’m looking forward to  being able to debate him, but I just hope all the protocols are followed which is necessary at the time”. 

Trump also tweeted that he was looking forward to the  debate.
