The White Houses top doctor relayed an optimistic assessment from his
patient Wednesday, the second public update on President Donald Trumps
health since he returned from the hospital with Covid-19 two days ago.
The President this morning says I feel great! Trumps physician, Sean
Conley, wrote in a memo released by the White House press office.
Trumps vital signs, oxygen saturation level and respiratory rate all
remain stable and in normal range Conley wrote.
The doctor reported that the president has now been fever-free for more
than 4 days, symptom-free for over 24 hours, and has not needed nor
received any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization.
In addition, Trumps labs demonstrated detectable levels of SARS-CoV-2
IgG antibodies from labs drawn Monday, Conley wrote, adding that initial
IgG levels drawn late Thursday night were undetectable.
Conleys memo referred to the long-lasting antibodies the human body
produces to combat the coronavirus, not the cloned antibodies Trump
received in the form of a drug treatment.
The body normally develops long-lasting Covid-19 antibodies several days
to a few weeks after infection. Their presence in Trumps system signals
that he is mounting an immune response against Covid-19 likely with help
from the drugs he was given during treatment, to some degree.
On Wednesday afternoon, Trump left the White House residence for the Oval
Office for the first time since he returned home from the hospital.
A White House spokesman, Brian Morgenstern, said the president was being
briefed on a brewing hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico and the status of
stimulus talks that the president had called off a day prior.
Its not clear what precautions were being taken to protect others in the
West Wing from the still-convalescing president.
Trump has so far received two rounds of oxygen therapy, two experimental
drugs including one that is not available to the broader patient
population and one steroid generally reserved for severe or critical
The president left Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Monday
evening after being admitted last Friday, and aides say he has worked from
the Executive Residence since returning to the White House.
Conleys latest memo comes after he transmitted a less substantive
appraisal of Trumps condition Tuesday afternoon, writing that the
president reports no symptoms and continues to do extremely well.
Neither the Tuesday nor Wednesday memo offered any details about the state
of Trumps lungs after being battered by an acute respiratory disease, and
the White House also has refused to provide a definitive timeline of the
presidents Covid-19 tests in the days before his diagnosis.
