Shortly before he left for Walter Reed hospital, US President Donald Trump posted an 18-second video on Twitter thanking everyone for their support after he contracted COVID-19. President Donald Trump said in a video posted to Twitter saying that he is “doing very well.”
The White House physician said Friday night that Mr. Trump has begun Remdesivir therapy, and has taken one dose of the antiviral. The physician added that Mr. Trump is “doing very well” and has not required supplemental oxygen.
White House spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany said earlier Friday that Mr. Trump has “mild symptoms,” and was being transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center “out of an abundance of caution and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts.”
