Wales will give Kieffer Moore and Chris Mepham time to prove their fitness for Sunday’s Nations League match against the Republic of Ireland.

Cardiff City striker Moore was forced off during the 3-0 friendly loss to England at Wembley with a bruised toe.

Bournemouth defender Mepham picked up a knee injury late on and both players will be assessed.

“They’re struggling a little bit. We’ll give them as much time as possible,” said Wales manager Ryan Giggs.

“We won’t take any risks if there are any risks but we’re keen for them both to be involved.

“We’ll have another day of treatment today [Saturday] so we’ll see how those injuries settle down.”

Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey has linked up with the Wales squad in Dublin after missing the England game.

Chris Christie has been released from the hospital, one week after contracting the coronavirus.

“I am happy to let you know that this morning I was released from Morristown Medical Center,” the former New Jersey governor wrote on Twitter Saturday morning. “I want to thank the extraordinary doctors & nurses who cared for me for the last week. Thanks to my family & friends for their prayers. I will have more to say about all of this next week.”

Christie, 57, first said he tested positive last Saturday, one day after President Donald Trump announced that he and wife, First Lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the virus.

Shortly after announcing his diagnosis, Christie revealed that he was at higher risk for coronavirus complications due to underlying health issues, including asthma, and shared that he had checked himself into

Covid-19 patients aren’t usually checking themselves into hospitals like Chris Christie, experts say

Christie’s announcement, which followed news that Trump, first lady Melania Trump and other Republican leaders had tested positive for the virus, sparked a flurry of reactions online. Chief among them: confusion.

“Regarding Chris Christie, can someone please tell me how one checks into a hospital as a ‘precautionary measure’?” one person wrote on Twitter.

Another person asked, “Can an ordinary citizen with mild symptoms just check themselves into a hospital out of an abundance of caution? Is that how this works?”

Not exactly, experts say.

“What occurred over the weekend with Governor Christie sharing on social media that he was checking himself into the hospital because of his covid-19 diagnosis, that would be extraordinarily uncommon,” said Mark Shapiro, associate medical director for hospital services at St. Joseph Health Medical Group of Sonoma County, Calif.

The process of being admitted to a hospital with covid-19, the disease caused by the

Saturday Night Live was not shy about addressing President Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.

The SNL cast returned to the studio on Saturday for their first live in-person show since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March, with Chris Rock serving as the host and Megan Thee Stallion as the musical guest for the season 46 premiere.

For the cold open, Alec Baldwin played Trump opposite Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden and recreated the first presidential debate, which took place in Cleveland on Tuesday, three days before the commander-in-chief, 74, publicly announced on Twitter that he and his wife, First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for the coronavirus.

“You did take the COVID test you promised you’d take in advance,” asked Beck Bennett, who played moderator Chris Wallace. “Absolutely, scout’s honor,” Baldwin’s Trump replied. Days after the debate, the Fox News host said on air

Biden to get test; Chris Christie in hospital

President Donald Trump will face a critical turning point in his battle with COVID-19 in the coming days as he remains at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Sunday. He announced early Friday that he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for the virus.

Saturday brought a number of mixed messages about Trump’s health. After White House physician Sean Conley said he was “extremely happy” with Trump’s progress, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told The Associated Press that Trump’s condition in the past day had been “very concerning.”

On Saturday evening, Trump tweeted a video of himself telling the American people that he’s “starting to feel good,” but he acknowledged the coming days would be “the real test.” Doctors say that’s because an imbalanced immune response during this time can have life-threatening consequences. 

Trump worked “most of the afternoon” Saturday and was moving around his medical

Chris Christie hospitalized with ‘mild’ virus symptoms

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tweeted Saturday that he’s checked himself into a hospital, hours after he announced he had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Christie said that after consulting with his doctors, he went to Morristown Medical Center on Saturday afternoon. He said he’s only experiencing mild symptoms.

“Due to my history of asthma, we decided this is an important precautionary measure,” he tweeted.

Christie, who has publicly struggled with his weight, is the latest in a string of virus cases connected to President Donald Trump’s inner circle.


Trump’s former 2016 rival told The Associated Press on Friday that the last time he was with the president was Tuesday in Cleveland during preparations for his debate with former Vice President Joe Biden. Christie had tweeted Friday morning that he had last tested negative ahead of Tuesday’s debate and was not having any symptoms then.

In 2013, during Christie’s
