Trump remains ‘fever-free & off supplemental oxygen’ but ‘not yet out of the woods’ – White House physician

Trump remains ‘fever-free & off supplemental oxygen’ but ‘not yet out of the woods’ – White House physician
President Donald Trump has shown “substantial progress” since he was diagnosed with Covid-19, but is not yet out of danger, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said in the latest health update.

“He spent much of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty,” Conley said in a statement on Saturday night.

“He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96% and 98% all day.”

The medical team continues to treat Trump with antiviral drug Remdesivir without any complications. In a video address to the American people on Saturday, Trump thanked supporters for their energy and medical personnel for their extraordinary work, saying he felt “much better” and was hoping to get back to public work in the nearest future.

Trump, 74, revealed this week that he and his wife, Melania tested positive for Covid-19. He was flown to Walter Reed on Friday evening at the request of Dr. Conley after experiencing symptoms. Multiple other politicians and White House officials have also revealed positive tests for the virus since then.
