According to President Trump’s physician, Sean Conley, the commander-in-chief is reporting no symptoms of the coronavirus the morning after returning to the White House Monday evening from a three-day stay at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Conley stated on Tuesday afternoon in a memo that Trump “had a restful first night at home, and today he reports no symptoms.”
Here’s more on this from the Washington Examiner:
Conley also said the president’s vital signs are “stable” and that he has “an ambulatory oxygen saturation level of 95-97%.” The doctor concluded the update by noting that Trump “continues to do extremely well.”
The White House says Trump first tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, two days after the first debate against former Vice President Joe Biden, and the president revealed that he and first lady Melania Trump contracted the coronavirus early Friday morning.
While Melania Trump’s case has been said to be very mild, Trump appeared to be in worse shape and was transported to Walter Reed in Bethesda, Maryland, on Friday. He was showing “mild symptoms” at that time, according to his chief of staff, Mark Meadows, who later said the symptoms ultimately got worse. During a press conference late Sunday morning, Conley confirmed that Trump was given supplemental oxygen on Friday and had a “high fever” but by that point was improving.
During his time in the hospital, the president was treated using multiple doses of remdesivir. While he was still at the White House, Trump was given an “experimental polyclonal antibody cocktail, along with some zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin, and an aspirin.
That’s a whole lot of medications, but it seems to be fairly effective for the president.
Trump released a video statement not long after returning to the White House where he encouraged Americans not to fear the coronavirus and not to let fear of the virus dominate their lives. This is a message we all need to hear right now.
Continue to pray for the president’s full recovery.
