Trump’s physician has disclosed that the United States President, Donald Trump, would likely remain in the hospital due to his illness.
This was disclosed a few minutes after Trump downplayed the severity of his health challenge.
He announced that he is leaving the hospital where he was given emergency treatment for Covid-19 and told the nation, where the virus has killed almost 210,000 people this year, that they have nothing to worry about.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life,” Trump tweeted.
“We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago,” he added.
Trump’s medical team on Monday said they support his return to the White House, but added that he “may not entirely be out of the woods yet” in his battle with coronavirus.
“We all remain cautiously optimistic and on guard because we’re in a bit of uncharted territory when it comes to a patient that received the therapies he has so early in the course,” Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, said.
“So we’re looking to this weekend, if we can get through to Monday with him remaining the same or improving, better yet, then we’ll all take that final deep sigh of relief,” he added.
Conley stated that Trump received supplemental oxygen twice over the course of his illness after his oxygen levels dropped on Friday and Saturday. But the doctor continued to evade questions about when Trump last tested negative for the virus and if the president’s CT scans or X-rays have shown any damage to his lungs, citing Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act concerns.
