WASHINGTON, USA – United States President Donald Trump “continues to do well, having made substantial progress” since COVID-19 diagnosis, according to a release by White House Press Secretary Saturday night.
“This evening he completed his second dose of Remdesivir without complication,” the statement read. “He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98% all day.”
“He spent most of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty,” the statement further said.
The release came after feverish and fatigued President was “flown to a military hospital Friday night where he is being given Remdesivir therapy after being injected with an experimental drug combination in treatment at the White House,” as AP reported.
“Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!” he wrote in his first tweet from the hospital Friday night.
Just a month before the presidential election, Trump’s announcement that he was positive for the virus came by a tweet about 1 a.m. Friday after he had returned from a Thursday afternoon political fundraiser.
First lady Melania Trump also tested positive, the president said, triggering concern that the White House or even Trump himself might have spread the virus further.
