Donald Trump has claimed he has a "protective glow" after being given the all-clear from coronavirus by White House medical staff.
The US president also declared himself immune to the virus, despite official guidance from the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention warning that recovering from COVID-19 does not make a patient immune to the virus.
His comments come a day before a scheduled rally in Sanford, Florida, followed by another in Pennsylvania on Tuesday and Iowa on Wednesday, with campaigning continuing ahead of election day on 3 November.
"I beat this crazy, horrible China virus," the president told Fox News in a phone call on Sunday, 10 days after his coronavirus diagnosis was confirmed by the White House.
