'President Trump Is Doing Very Well' His Physician Says

President Trump is not on oxygen and he has no difficulty breathing, the medical team at Walter Reed has confirmed.

Dr. Sean Conley holds a press conference at Walter Reed

Dr. Sean Conley emerged from the double-brass doors of Walter Reed medical center at 11:39 a.m. Addressing the press, he said that President Trump is an "exceptionally good spirit" and that he said, "I feel I could walk out of here today". 

President received antibody therapy and he will continue to receive a 5-day treatment of remdesivir for COVID19. Dr. Conley said that among the early symptoms President had been "caugh", "fever" and that he felt "run down". 

Dr. Conley said that "Thursday into Friday president Trump had a fever" but did not want to provide the exact number. The doctor added that President Trump has been fever-free in the past 24 hours. 

 "Trump is not on oxygen", Conley said but refused to put a date on the president's discharge day. "Every day we are evaluating if he needs to be here", Trump's doctor said and predicted that he will remain off oxygen. 

"First Lady is doing great", Conley said and added that her condition does not require anything beyond guaranteeing at home. 

UPDATE: 

Pooler passes along these comments on the background from a source familiar with the president’s health.

“The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery.”
