Trump's medical team gives an update – BBC News

In their first update since he entered Walter Reed hospital on Friday evening, President Trump’s doctors appeared in masks and white coats to share his status – saying he is being closely monitored, but they are extremely happy with his progress.

US President Donald Trump is “very well” after spending his first night in a hospital where he is being treated after testing positive for coronavirus.

His personal doctor Dr Sean Conley said he was not on extra oxygen for now and had been fever-free for 24 hours.

However, conflicting reports have emerged suggesting concern over Mr Trump’s health, the time he was diagnosed or whether he was on oxygen.

In exactly one month, Mr Trump faces Joe Biden in the presidential election.

The positive diagnosis, made public in a tweet on Friday, has upended his campaign and also cast doubt on his attempt to get a new Supreme Court judge confirmed before polling day.

The president is expected to remain at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center close to Washington DC for several days. Dr Conley said he was “cautiously optimistic” about his condition but that he could not give a timetable for his discharge.
