U.S. President Donald Trump’s attending physician said in a memo Thursday that Trump “has completed the COVID-19 treatment process,”media CNET reported. Sean Conley, the White House doctor, estimated that Mr. Trump would resume public events on Saturday, but gave no information about his latest negative test. Since leaving the hospital, Mr. Trump’s medical results have been “stable” and he shows no signs of progressing.
The doctor added that Trump “reacted very well to the treatment, and there was no evidence of adverse treatment in the examination.”
Trump leaves Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday. On Sunday, his doctors said his health was improving as he responded to COVID-19 treatment. Dr. Brian Garibaldi of Johns Hopkins University said Monday that Mr. Trump will “continue his treatment” at the White House, where he is a consultant on the president’s health care. Mr. Trump walked out of the hospital uninsupered before getting into an armored SUV and heading for a Marine Corps One helicopter.
Trump took off his mask as he reached the top of the White House staircase, where he stopped for photographers. He walked in without a mask and then filmed a video on the balcony, which he posted on Twitter Monday night.
“I’ve learned a lot about the new coronavirus,” Trump said. “I didn’t feel very well, two days ago… I feel good, like I’ve been better than I’ve been for a long time. He added that he had done what any leader would do to get back to work, adding. I know there’s a risk, there’s a risk, but that’s for sure… Now I’m better, maybe I’m immune, I don’t know. “
Earlier Monday, Trump wrote on Twitter: “It feels really good! Don’t be afraid of COVID. Don’t let it dominate your life. Under the Trump administration, we’ve developed some great drugs and mastered a lot of knowledge. “
Late Thursday, Mr. Trump announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, and on Friday, out of what the White House called “high caution,” he went to Walter Reed for treatment. Over the weekend, Conley confirmed that At one point, Trump was given oxygen to help him breathe.
Conley’s team said at a news conference Saturday that a multidisciplinary medical team is conducting “state-of-the-art monitoring” of the president and looking for any evidence of complications from Trump’s treatment. The team said Trump received the first experimental drug, Redsyvir, on Friday night and plans to continue the five-day treatment.
The team says the seventh to 10th days of COVID infection, the inflammatory period, can cause concern that doctors will be cautious. First lady Melania Trump is also infected and is in good condition and recuperated at home, doctors said.
On Thursday, before confirming his positive test results, the 74-year-old Trump revealed that he and the 50-year-old first lady had been quarantined after learning that his aide Hope Hicks had tested positive.
On Friday, Kellyanne Conway, a senior adviser to Mr. Trump, tweeted that she had tested positive for the new coronavirus. “My symptoms were mild (a mild cough) and I felt fine,” she wrote. “I’ve consulted with my doctor and started the isolation process.”
On Saturday, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie tweeted that his new coronavirus tested positive. Other people around Mr. Trump who have tested positive include Bill Stephens, Mr. Trump’s campaign manager; Kelly McNerney, the White House press secretary; Nick Luna, a White House aide; and Republican senators. Mike Lee of Utah, Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, CBS News reported.
Admiral Charles Ray’s new crown tested positive on Tuesday after it was reported that almost all members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had been quarantined after attending a Pentagon meeting last week.
Vice President Mike Pence and his wife tested negative Friday, as did Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Wash your hands, wear a mask, and keep your social distance.
Two days before Trump’s diagnosis, Johns Hopkins University reported that more than a million people worldwide have died from the new coronavirus, a grim milestone. Less than a week earlier, more than 200,000 COVID-19-related deaths in the United States had been reported.
As the virus spreads around the world, health care professionals warn that certain groups of people, including the elderly and people with underlying conditions, are at higher risk of serious or even fatal diseases if they are infected with COVID-19.
The new coronavirus is mainly transmitted through respiratory droplets, such as when someone sneezes or coughs, and can spread to the air around you. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Monday that the new coronavirus will remain in the air, which could play a role in transmission, even for those more than 6 feet away.
Health officials continue to encourage people to wash their hands, wear masks when out in public places, keep social distance and avoid close contact with the sick.
People who have tested positive for COVID-19 should contact their doctor or local health care provider. The CDC recommends new crown tests if people develop COVID-19 symptoms, if people have been in close contact with people who have tested positive for COVID-19 (at least 15 minutes within 6 feet), or if health care providers require people to do so.
Masks and tests.
Hicks, a White House aide, has accompanied Mr. Trump on several occasions in recent days, including a presidential debate with Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday, September 29, and a campaign rally in Minnesota on Wednesday. Although the candidates addressed topics including race relations, climate change and the Supreme Court during the debate, the new crown virus dominated much of the debate. Mr. Trump defended his decision not to wear facial masks in public, explaining that he would wear a mask “when needed.”
“I think masks are 10,” Trump said when host Chris Wallace asked him why he usually doesn’t wear them in public. He took a mask out of the pocket of his suit jacket to show that he was carrying it with him.
“I put on a mask, you know, when I think I need it. Tonight is an example, everyone has a test. “Trump said.” I’ll wear a mask when I need it. “
On Friday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said he and his wife’s COVID-19 test was negative. Vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris and her husband also said they tested negative Friday.
White House spokesman Judd Deere said Trump “takes very seriously the health and safety of himself and everyone who supports him.”
“The White House Operations Department is working with the president’s doctors and the White House Office of Military Affairs to ensure that all programs and procedures incorporate current CDC guidance and best practices to maximize the exposure of COVID-19, whether in complex or presidential travel,” Deere continued in a statement sent to CNN.
The Trump campaign said Friday that the previously announced event involving the president will be held online or temporarily postponed.
An experimental “antibody cocktail therapy”
On Friday, White House press secretary Sean McNerney posted a report on the president’s doctor on Twitter, revealing that Trump had received “a single 8-g dose of Regeneron Doclonal Antibody Cocktail.” Trump has also been taking vitamin D, zinc, melatonin, aspirin and the antihistamine/anti-acid drug molytide.
During the trial, the experimental drug “reduced viral load and time to relieve symptoms” in non-hospitalized COVID-19 patients, according to a September 29 statement from Regeneron, a Tarrytown, N.Y.-based company.
REGN-COV2 “cocktail therapy”, which combines reGN10933 and REGN10987 monoclonal antibodies, is specifically designed to treat SARS-CoV-2 and is currently testing the effectiveness of preventing infection and treating hospitalized patients who have been exposed to the new coronavirus.
“The greatest therapeutic benefit is in patients who do not produce their own effective immune response, suggesting that REGN-COV2 may provide therapeutic alternatives to naturally occurring immune responses,” said Dr. George D. Yancopoulos, Regeneron’s chief scientific officer. “These patients are less likely to remove the virus on their own, and there is a greater risk of prolonged symptoms.”
