Washington: President Donald Trump’s blood oxygen level dropped suddenly, but he “continued to improve”, said the White House physician on Sunday.
Trump’s medical team informed that he might be discharged from the hospital as early as Monday, speaking from the steps of the military hospital.
“I was trying to reflect the upbeat attitude of the team, that the president, that his course of illness has had. Didn’t want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction”, Conley said, acknowledging that he tried to downplay the severity of the president’s condition.
The president had a “high fever” and a blood oxygen level below 94% on Friday and again on Saturday, said Trump’s medical team.
Trump posted a video to offer his own assessment of his heath status from his hospital, saying he started to feel better and hoped to “be back soon”.
