President Donald Trump ventured back into the Oval Office yesterday despite his Covid-19 diagnosis, according to his adviser Larry Kudlow.

Kudlow was on CNBC for an interview ostensibly on stimulus talks, but he broke the news when asked about Trump's condition.

"The president actually showed up in the Oval office yesterday with extra precautions with respect to his Covid-19 and he's getting a lot better," Kudlow said.

Kudlow would not say whether Trump wore a mask when pressed on it.

Instead, Kudlow claimed "additional measures" that are "much greater than simply masking" were taken.

The White House and Trump's doctors have provided a series of misleading and confusing statements about the president's health, making it impossible to know whether he's still contagious or what risk he poses to other workers in the West Wing.
