The shock news that Donald Trump had tested positive for Covid-19 last week was followed by an even more dramatic development: he was being admitted to hospital “out of an abundance of caution”.

The Guardian’s Washington bureau chief, David Smith, tells Anushka Asthana that questions still remain about the extent of the president’s illness despite briefings from his medical team. There are also worries about how the president and his staff could have been exposed to the virus despite extensive testing in the White House.

Meanwhile, with only a month until election day, Trump faces a period of recovery that will could him off the campaign trail.
