Trump discharged from Walter Reed medical center on Monday
President Donald Trump tweeted that he will leave Walter Reed National Military Medical Center at 6:30 p.m. on October 5.
The president added that he was “feeling really good.”
Trump was taken to the medical center on Friday after he tested positive for COVID-19.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2020
Trump spent three nights at the medical center in Bethesda, Maryland receiving treatment after his coronavirus diagnosis.
Dr. Sean Conley and other members of Trump's medical team shared an update on the president’s health on Monday afternoon.
“Over the past 24 hours, the president has continued to improve. He’s met or exceeded all standard hospital discharge criteria. He’ll receive another dose of Remdesivir here today. Then we plan to get him home. It’s been more than 72 hours since his last fever,” Conley said.
Trump’s oxygen levels were normal on Monday, according to Conley.
Conley, who received a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, became the White House physician in 2018.
