    US President Donald Trump has told Fox News in an interview that he no longer has the coronavirus infection and appears to be immune to the disease.

    "I passed the highest test, the highest standards, and I'm in great shape," Trump told anchor Maria Bartiromo. "It seems like I'm immune. I can go way out of the basement... It looks like I'm immune for, I don't know, maybe a long time and maybe a short time, it could be a lifetime, nobody really knows, but I'm immune".

    The US president admitted that he felt "really good".

    "And I even feel good by the fact that, you know, the word immunity means something — having really a protective glow means something. I think it's very important to have that, to have that is a very important thing," Trump told anchor Maria Bartiromo.

    After the interview, Trump took to Twitter to reiterate the fact he is apparently immune to the coronavirus

The doctors discharged Trump from the hospital on Monday and the US President continued with work as usual saying he feels well after being treated.
