Washington, Oct 8 : US President Donald Trump’s doctor said that he has had no Covid-19 symptoms for more than 24 hours and has been fever-free for more than four days.
Trump’s oxygen levels and respiratory rate are stable, White House physician Sean Conley wrote in a memorandum released Wednesday.
“His physical exam and vital signs, including oxygen saturation and respiratory rate, all remain stable and in normal range,” Conley said in a statement that omitted several key details about the president’s condition.
Trump left the White House residence after remaining isolated there since returning late Monday from a three-day hospital stay because of the illness. His time Wednesday in the Oval Office — where he was briefed on coronavirus stimulus talks and the latest hurricane to threaten U.S. shores — was his first known time back in the West Wing of the complex since he came back from hospital Monday.
Conley said that Trump has been fever-free for more than four days and “has not needed nor received any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization.”
“He wants to speak to the American people, he will do so soon,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern told reporters Wednesday afternoon. “I don’t have an exact time or a definite way he’ll do that. As you’ve seen, there have been Twitter videos that are a pretty easy and effective way for him to get out. That’s certainly something that we’re always considering.”
