Conley said President Trump was transferred to Walter Reed hospital as a ‘precaution’, doctors are extremely happy.
Conley said the President had tested positive for COVID-19 and displayed symptoms, a mild cough and fever. However, Conley was very cryptic on many aspects of the president’s health, refusing to confirm or deny whether the President required oxygen. Other than saying he was ‘very well’, the Doctor didn’t say anything about the president’s current condition.
Doctor Conley told reporters that he had started Trump on a 5-day course of the drug Remdesivir 48 hours ago; but, Trump first tested positive before that! This admission leads to some very serious questions on when exactly Trump had tested positive for Coronavirus.
Trump’s Doctor told the press that President Trump had first tested positive for Cornavirus 72 hours ago; Although, the public only found out about the Presidents declining health 36 hours ago.
