Early Friday morning, it was announced that Donald and Melania Trump were both said to be infected with COVID-19. Hours later, it was announced that Trump would be staying at Walter Reed hospital and would receive an anti-viral drug.
In a memo shared by White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, White House physician Navy Cmdr. Dr. Sean Conley wrote Trump is doing “very well.”
“This evening I’m 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 has completed his first dose and is resting comfortably.”
Trump later gave an update. He stated,
“I want to thank everybody for the tremendous support. I’m going to Walter Reed Hospital. I think I’m doing very well. We’re going to make sure that things work out. The first lady is doing very well. So thank you very much, I appreciate it. I will never forget it. Thank you,” he said.
Trump also sent a tweet late from Walter Reed and said, “Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”
A Trump adviser stated that Trump was very fatigued and tired.
“This is serious,” the adviser said. The adviser went on to describe Trump as very tired, very fatigued and having some trouble breathing, according to CNN.
Trump’s physician also stated Donnie was in good spirits. “He’s being evaluated by a team of experts, and together we’ll be making recommendations to the President and First Lady in regards to next best steps,” Conley wrote.
It was also said that Trump had been administered a Regeneron polyclonal antibody cocktail and has been taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin, CNN reports.
“The big news there is that he got an experimental drug. He got a drug not approved by the FDA,” said Reiner, who has treated former Vice President Dick Cheney.”
Barack Obama and Joe Biden sent well wishes to Donnie.
We’ll keep you updated, Roomies.
