President Trump’s medical team revealed on Sunday morning that he is responding appropriately to treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center and could be discharged from the facility as soon as Monday.
“Today he feels well,” said Dr. Brian Garibaldi, a lung specialist at Johns Hopkins who is assisting the medical team at Walter Reed.
“He has been up and around. Our plan for today is to have him eat and drink, be up out of bed as much as possible, to be mobile, and if he continues to look and feel as well as he does today our hope is that we can plan for a discharge as early as tomorrow to the White House where he can continue his treatment course.”
Trump’s team has maintained an optimistic tone throughout the process, and Trump has been giving daily video updates as his treatment progresses.
Trump’s personal physician, Dr. Sean Conley, revealed on Sunday morning that Trump did experience a rapid deterioration on Friday, including a high fever and a transient drop in oxygen levels.
Conley said that Trump received supplemental oxygen and normal levels were quickly restored.
Garibaldi said that Trump is receiving a 5-day course of experimental antiviral Remdesivir, along with dexamethasone, a steroid medication. He has also been treated with an experimental treatment cocktail called Regeneron.
