White House Physician Sean Conley has reported that President Donald Trump could be discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center as early as Monday.
“If he continues to look and feel as well as he does today, our hope is that we can plan for discharge as early as tomorrow to the White House where he can continue his treatment course,” Dr. Brian Garibaldi said at a press conference on Sunday.
The President tested positive for COVID-19 late Thursday night. Within 24 hours, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows reported that the commander-in-chief was experiencing “mild” symptoms.
“The president does have mild symptoms, and as we look to try to make sure that not only his health and safety and welfare is good, we continue to look at that for all of the American people,” Meadows said.
As the day progressed, Trump’s physical state reportedly began to deteriorate. Reports suggested that Trump was fatigued and experiencing fevers. By the end of the day, he was taken to Walter Reed Medical Center in Maryland.
“Yesterday, we were really concerned. He had a fever and his blood oxygen level dropped rapidly,” Meadows said on Saturday.
After arriving at Walter Reed Medical Center, reports of the President’s health vastly improved. Doctors provided Trump dexamethasone therapy and remdesivir to improve Trump’s health.
“The fact of the matter is, is that he’s doing really well, that he is — he is responding. And as the team said, if everything continues to go well, we’re going to start discharge planning back to the White House,” Dr. Sean Conley stated.
