President Trump is now back at the White House and still contagious with COVID-19 after being treated at the hospital.

Even though the president has been downplaying his condition, medical experts say he should be closely monitored in the coming days because it's too early to know whether his condition will deteriorate.

Here & Now's Tonya Mosley speaks with Dr. Rochelle Walensky, chief of infectious diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

This segment aired on October 6, 2020.
