CNN's Jeremy Diamond reported:

Just the last point here, what he does instead to show his supporters that he is fine, he endangers the lives of intelligence agents. We saw at least two intelligence agents in the vehicle the president was driving in. They wore n95 respirators but that's it.

Not the kind of protocols that are behind me at Walter Reed, where we told the doctors to go into the room to see him. They wear all protective equipment, which includes a mask and some form of face protection. It includes gloves and protective gear over clothing. There is a certain risk that the president will be willing to impose the atmosphere of the intelligence service in order to achieve his publicly available goals.

Trump had to stroke his ego so he had to get out in front of a crowd. Since Trump's personal needs always come before the health and safety of those around him, he exposed intelligence agents to the coronavirus just so he could wave to some people and pretend everything was okay.

Even after receiving the corona virus, Trump continues to endanger the lives of his fellow human beings.
