US President Donald Trump is “doing well” and has started Remdesivir therapy, his doctor announced hours after he was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center following a COVID-19 diagnosis.
White House physician Sean Conley said the president’s transfer from the White House came after consultation with specialists from Walter Reed and Johns Hopkins University “for further monitoring.”
“This evening I am happy to report that the President is doing very well. He is not requiring any supplemental oxygen, but in consultation with specialists we have elected to initiate Remdesivir therapy,” he said in a statement. “He has completed his first dose and is resting comfortably.”
Trump was admitted to the hospital for a few days as a precautionary measure, said a White House spokeswoman.
In a tweet late Friday, Trump thanks everyone and suggests he is doing well.
“Going well, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!,”
