Donald Trump is currently in the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland where his condition will be closely monitored by doctors after being diagnosed with Covid-19.
Trump tweeted that he is “going well”, while the White House physician, Dr Sean Conley, has confirmed that the president is being treated with the antiviral drug remdesivir.
U.S. President Donald Trump is endeavoring to portray a positive picture of his condition via Twitter claiming that he was feeling well with the help of the doctors and nurses at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
“Doctors, Nurses and ALL at the GREAT Walter Reed Medical Center, and others from likewise incredible institutions who have joined them, are AMAZING!!!,” Trump said.
“Tremendous progress has been made over the last 6 months in fighting this PLAGUE. With their help, I am feeling well!”
This rosy picture contrasts with the version from White House sources who maintain that the current state of health of Donald Trump is “very worrying” and that the next “48 will be critical”.
“The signs over the past 24 hours have been worrying and the forthcoming 48 hours will be critical in determining his state of health. We’re still not on the road to full recovery”, explained the source to a group of media members who cover White House news.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?creatorScreenName=diarioas&dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-1&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1312428550247583744&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fen.as.com%2Fen%2F2020%2F10%2F03%2Flatest_news%2F1601748889_014869.html&siteScreenName=diarioas&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=550px
