‘He continues to do extremely well’: WH physician says Trump has ‘no symptoms’

Official White House physician Dr. Sean Conley announced Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s health continues to improve following his COVID-19 diagnosis on Friday and he is now experiencing “no symptoms,” The Hill reported.

Trump was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and returned to the White House on Monday evening.

An “abundance of caution”

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced Friday that Trump was transferred to Walter Reed out of an “abundance of caution,” Fox News reported.

The president was immediately treated with therapeutics to prevent his condition from worsening. “Following PCR-confirmation of the President’s diagnosis, as a precautionary measure he received a single 8-gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail,” read a memo released from the president’s physician on Friday, according to Fox.

Throughout his stay at Walter Reed, the president provided updates to the American people via Twitter.

“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well. I feel much better now, and we’re working hard to get me all the way back,” the president said in a video posted to Twitter on Saturday.

On Sunday, Trump briefly left the hospital in the White House motorcade to do a surprise drive-by as a way to thank the people who had gathered outside to pray and show their support.

No symptoms

The president seems to have only improved since then.

“This morning the President’s team of physicians met with him in the Residence. He had a restful first night at home, and today he reports no symptoms,” Conley wrote in a memorandum released Tuesday, according to The Hill.

He continued: “Vital signs and physical exam remain stable, with an ambulatory oxygen saturation level of 95–97%. Overall he continues to do extremely well, I will provide updates as we know more.”

Trump made a triumphant return to the White House Monday evening and gave a message of strength to the American people, encouraging them not to be afraid.

“Don’t let it dominate you,” he said in a video posted to Twitter. “Don’t be afraid of it. You’re going to beat it. We have the best medical equipment, we have the best medicines and you’re going to beat it.”
