Last week was a political headache to say the least. It ended with even more of a circus as POTUS & FLOTUS both tested positive for COVID-19.
It’s unclear when the official diagnosis came to be but the President was rushed to Walter Reed Hospital on Friday. It’s noted that he was experiencing mild symptoms including a headache, fever, and a light cough. Medical staff was also concerned about his condition as his vital signs were worrisome going into the weekend. To be honest, the reports have been all over the place and even White House staff members have shared frustrations about the lack of information on his health.
Doctor Conley says that Trump did have “two episodes of transient drops in his oxygen saturation”. At that point, they did administer supplemental oxygen. They also gave him a CT Scan and X-Ray of his lungs, “there’s some expected findings, but nothing of any major clinical concern,” Conley said. Despite the chaotic few days, doctors are adding to the confusion by signaling that Trump could be discharged as early as Monday.
