Trump’s physician Dr. Sean Conley gave an update
President Trump could be released from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as soon as Monday, his medical team said in an update Sunday to members of the White House press pool, as the president continues his treatment on dexamethasone and Remdesivir to fight coronavirus.
Dr. Brian Garibaldi, with Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, said Trump has completed his second dose of Remdesivir and has exhibited no side effects as far as his team can tell. His team will therefore continue plans to keep him on the medication over a five-day period. In response to transient low oxygen levels, the president also has begun dexamethasone treatment and was given his first dose Saturday.
Garibaldi said the team remains hopeful to plan for the president to be discharged “as soon as tomorrow,” so he can continue treatment at the White House.
Before the press conference, Trump campaign senior adviser Steve Cortes described the president as “upbeat and assertive as ever” as he fights the coronavirus in an appearance on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace.
He added: “This president is going to recover, we are highly confident of that.”
