Some of Donald Trump’s vital signs over the past 24 hours were “very concerning” but have improved since he was admitted to a military hospital, a source familiar with the president’s condition has said.
Donald Trump was administered with supplemental oxygen at the White House hours after being diagnosed with Covid-19 and before being flown to a military hospital, the source claimed.
Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley, sidestepped the question when pressed during a public announcement today.
Dr Conley said Trump was not administered oxygen on Thursday or since he has been a patient at Walter Reed Medical Center and that his symptoms were subsiding.
Trump was admitted to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday after saying he had contracted Covid-19. First lady Melania Trump also has fallen ill.
The person described the next 48 hours as critical and said there was no clear path yet on a recovery and that it could be days before he was discharged.
