COVID in the White House

Trump 'symptom-free for over 24 hours' and has produced coronavirus antibodies, doctor says

President Trump's doctor has released an oddly informal update on his health.

Just a day and a half after leaving the hospital, Trump is displaying no symptoms of coronavirus, and hasn't for the past 24 hours, Trump's physician Dr. Sean Conley said in a Wednesday release. Trump apparently said "I feel great!" this morning, has normal vital signs, and has not used supplemental oxygen since his release from the hospital. In addition, Trump has produced detectable levels of COVID-19 antibodies — something that was undetectable when he first tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

As previous releases from the White House have noted, Trump's doctor has released only the information Trump has allowed him to, meaning there may be more details of his medical status left unpublicized. The note makes no mention of what drugs Trump may be taking, or if he stopped taking medication altogether. Trump's medical team still has not answered when Trump last tested negative for COVID-19.
