WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is moving into a special suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, for the next few days as a precautionary measure following his testing positive for COVID-19, a White House official said on Friday.

Doctors urged the move so Trump could get immediate care if needed, the official said.
