Donald Trump, President of the United States, who confirms that he and Melania Trump have tested positive for COVID-19, has various dangerous factors for more intense coronavirus symptoms.
President Trump is in the high-risk section regarding his age – he is 74 years old – and his weight. Moreover, he is clinically obese (the person whose BMI is greater than 30), and that condition brings more risks toward severe Coronavirus illness.

The U.S. CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) said that anybody with the age range from 65 to 74 likely deals with 5 times higher risk of hospitalization and also ninety times higher danger of death from Coronavirus while comparing to young people with the age range of 18-29.
According to his physical in April, the media company, CNN, reported in June that Trump has weighed 244 pounds and has a height of 6 feet 3 inches. So, it turned him into a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30.5, which technically made him obese. As we know, older people face a higher risk of getting Coronavirus as compared to young people. Obesity increases the risk of hospitalization three times from Coronavirus, CDC says.
Males are more likely to get COVID-19 as compared to females
As President is also a male, and males are more probable to suffer the severe condition of COVID-19 or die as compared to females, the dominant health organization reported. Furthermore, it is not recognized if President Trump has many other medical risks that could push him into a bigger risk section.
President Trump’s blood pressure is only a little higher, the latest physical test of Trump says. Furthermore, there is no proof that President Trump has kidney disease, diabetes, cancer, or any other conditions known to push people at bigger risk.
Dr. Sean Conley, President Trump’s physician, described that his last physical test was conducted in April that there were no results of significance to report.
Health condition of the First Lady
The U.S. CDC (Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) says that Melania Trump, 50, the first lady is not at higher danger, but when people get older, the danger of becoming harshly ill ramps up.
However, people with the age range of 50-64 have 3 times higher risk of being hospitalized due to Coronavirus and thirty times the risk of death while compared to the young people with the age range of 18-29.
