President Trump will be “frustrated” by having to self-isolate, his former doctor has told the BBC.

“He does love to be out among the folks, out on the campaign trail,” said Dr Ronny Jackson, who was the official physician to the president until 2018, and is now running for Congress as a Republican.

He said Trump is in “incredible health”, and that it could be less than 10 days before the president is testing negative for the virus and is “back to his normal style”.

“It reminds us all that he’s the president of the United States, but he is a human being just like the rest of us and is also susceptible to this kind of stuff, too,” Dr Jackson told BBC Radio 4’s World at One.

“So if he gets past this and he remains asymptomatic, I think it will reassure a lot of folks in this country.”
