Donald Trump completed 2nd dose of Remdesivir, making progress but not out of the woods: White House doctor
US President Donald Trump, who was admitted to a military hospital in Washington after he tested positive for coronavirus on Friday, has completed the second dose of Remdesivir and made substantial progress since diagnosis, the White House physician, Sean Conley, said on Sunday.
Conley said the president remains fever free and off supplemental oxygen.
In a statement, the doctor said that while Donald Trump has been making substantial progress and remains fever-free, “he is not yet out of the woods”. But the team remains cautiously omistic, the White House doctor said.
“President Donald Trump completed the 2nd dose of Remdesivir and has made substantial progress. He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98 per cent all day. While not yet out of the woods, the team remains cautiously omistic,” Sean Conley said.
The doctor added that the plan for Sunday is to continue observation in between doses of Remdesivir, closely monitoring his clinical status while fully supporting his conduct of presidential duties.
President Donald Trump, he said, spent most of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suit without difficulty.
Donald Trump tested positive for coronavirus after one of his top aides’ result came as positive, a development that upended his election campaign just weeks before the presidential polls.
First Lady Melania Trump also tested positive for the coronavirus and is undergoing quarantine. Donald Trump was admitted to a military hospital on Saturday.
STARTING TO FEEL GOOD: DONALD TRUMP
President Donald Trump has said that he has started to “feel much better” and thanked the American people and global leaders for their support.
“I came here. Wasn’t feeling so well. I feel much better now. We’re working hard to get me all the way back. I have to be back because we still have to Make America Great Again,” Trump said in a video message from the military hospital in Washington.
NEXT 48 HOURS CRITICAL
President Donald Trump went through a “very concerning” period on Friday and faces a “critical” next two days in his fight against coronavirus at a military hospital, his chief of staff said Saturday.
Chief of staff Mark Meadows told reporters outside the hospital, “We’re still not on a clear path yet to a full recovery.”
