The Argument

Having personally experienced the healthcare problems associated with the virus, Donald Trump will be more sympathetic to those experiencing it personally and will design policy targeted towards fighting the disease specifically. Just as Boris Johnson did after being ill with coronavirus, Trump will be more determined to successfully eradicate COVID-19.

Counter arguments

American citizens may vote out of sympathy for Trump having contracted the virus rather than for his policies addressed at targeting the virus once and for all.
