U.S. President Donald Trump’s physician Dr. Sean Conley, and other members of his medical team, delivered an update on the president’s health on Saturday, following his positive COVID-19 diagnosis.
Conley said Trump has been fever-free for 24 hours. The president was admitted out of precaution to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday in Bethesda, Md., where he remains, after testing positive for the coronavirus.
While Conley said the president is not currently on oxygen, he refused to say whether the president had ever been on oxygen, despite repeated questioning. He said that Trump’s symptoms, including a cough and nasal congestion “are now resolving and improving.”
“He’s in exceptionally good spirits,” said another doctor, Sean Dooley.
This update comes after multiple cases have already been confirmed among those who have had close contact with Trump and his close advisor, Hope Hicks, whose diagnosis prompted the test that confirmed Trump had the coronavirus.
Many of those people attended a Sept. 26 event in the White House Rose Garden where Trump officially nominated Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court. Nearly a dozen more were involved in setting up the president’s first debate with Joe Biden on Sept. 29.
The president has been receiving an experimental antibody drug to treat his illness according to his doctor.
Prior to being taken to Walter Reed hospital, he told the public in a video message shared on Twitter that he thinks he’s “doing very well.”
