Trump tests negative for COVID-19: Doctor

US President Donald Trump's White House doctor says Trump has tested negative for COVID-19 on consecutive days using a new rapid test.

The assessment from Sean Conley comes as Trump is traveling to Florida to headline his first campaign rally since becoming infected with the coronavirus.

Conley had said in a written memo released over the weekend that Trump was no longer at risk of spreading the virus to others.

Conley said in a fresh update released on Monday that Trump tested negative for COVID-19 on consecutive days using a newer 15-minute test from Abbott laboratories.

He did not say when Trump was tested.

Trump announced on October 2 that he had tested positive for the disease caused by the coronavirus.

He was admitted to Walter Reed military hospital that night and released on October 5.

Over the weekend, Trump addressed scores of supporters who crowded onto the White House lawn from a balcony.
