Washington: The White House physician announced on Thursday that US President Donald Trump is fit to resume “public engagements” from Saturday, informing the US leader responded “extremely well” to Covid-19 treatment.
“Saturday will be day 10 since Thursday’s diagnosis, and based on the trajectory of advanced diagnostics the team has been conducting, I fully anticipate the President’s safe return to public engagements at that time”.
“Overall he’s responded extremely well to treatment, without evidence on examination of adverse therapeutic effects”, said Trump’s doctor Sean Conley in a statement.
Before returning to the White House on Monday evening, Trump spent three days in the hospital.
The White House became a Covid-19 hotspot, with dozens of people around Trump testing positive.
Trump received an experimental antibody treatment, the antiviral drug remdesivir and the steroid dexamethasone.
With only 26 days left for the November 3 election, the president is determined to get back on the campaign to support his base against Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.
