US President Donald Trump, who has had a coronavirus, said that he was not diagnosed with pneumonia during his hospitalization. He spoke about this on October 15 at a pre-election event in Miami.
At the same time, the American leader noted that doctors told him about some changes in the tissues of the lungs.
“They said that the lungs may be slightly different, slightly infected,” NBC News quoted Trump as saying.
In addition, the head of the White House avoided answering the question whether he was tested for coronavirus infection on the day of his debate with the Democratic candidate in the November elections, Joe Biden.
Earlier on Thursday, the second face-to-face debate of candidates for the presidency of the United States was supposed to take place, but Trump refused to participate after learning that it had been decided to conduct them online.
The organizers called the reason for this decision the fact that Trump was being treated for COVID-19 in early October.
As a result, politicians held separate meetings with voters: Trump in Miami, and Biden in Philadelphia.
The final debate is scheduled for next Thursday, October 22nd. The presidential elections themselves will be held on November 3.
