President Trump Can Return To Public Engagements On 10 October As He's Completed Covid-19 Treatments Says His Doctor

The President was hospitalized for three days. He is planning to organize a rally in Florida on October 10, 2020.

President Trump is likely to return to public engagements by October 10, 2020. According to the New York Times, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley updated the American people about the President's well being. He stated that Trump had completed the treatments to alleviate the symptoms of the coronavirus.



 

In a public memo, Conley stated, "Today the President has completed his course of therapy for COVID-19 as prescribed by his team of physicians. Since returning home, his physical exam has remained stable and devoid of any indications to suggest progression of illness," according to the New York Post

He further stated, "Overall he’s responded extremely well to treatment, without evidence on examination of adverse therapeutic effects. Saturday will be day 10 since Thursday’s diagnosis and based on the trajectory of advanced diagnostics the team has been conducting, I fully anticipate the president’s safe return to public engagements at that time,” according to the New York Post.



 

According to the guidelines laid by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, those tested positive for the virus should be in isolation for at least 10 days after testing or after the symptoms first appear. Meanwhile, those with a severe or moderate case of illness can stay infectious for up to 20 days or longer.



 

Trump and Melania announced they were tested positive for the virus at 1 AM on October 2, 2020. The couple was admitted to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, later that afternoon. Though officials stated the President's symptoms were mild, many media organizations reported he was administered with supplemental oxygen due to a decrease in the blood oxygen levels at the White House.

The 74-year-old was also given experimental polyclonal antibodies. At the hospital, the President was administered doses of antiviral drug Remdesivir, and steroid Dexamethasone.

After three days of hospitalization, the President was discharged on October 5, 2020. However, the White House officials have refrained from announcing when the President was tested negative. The President, on the other hand, wrote, "Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life," on Twitter, according to Texas Tribune.



 

Soon after the memo was released, Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity that he was planning to hold a rally in Florida on October 20, 2020.

"I think I'm gonna try doing a rally on Saturday night if we have enough time to put it together — but we wanna do a rally, probably in Florida on Saturday night," said Trump, according to CBS News. "We might come back and do one in Pennsylvania the following night, and it's incredible what's going on. I feel so good."
