US president’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, reported the improvement of the US president’s health. Despite the excellent report, concerns are still going high and raised doubts about the White House’s false statements.
The sudden illness of US President Donald Trump has pushed the election into more friction and controversies. It was said that Dr. Conley’s reports came in contrast to the signals from the White House. It made the briefing outside Walter Reed Medical Center to gather more questions than answers.
“The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We’re still not on a clear path to a full recovery.”According to a source
The statement stood in contrast against Dr. Conley’s report.
“At this time the team and I are extremely happy with the progress the President has made. Thursday, he had a mild cough and some nasal congestion and fatigue. All of which are now resolving and improving.”Dr. Sean Conley
The two statements raised more concerns from the public about the President’s condition to be much worse than what Dr. Conley has reported.
The briefing raised new concerns as to when the President was known to be sick. On Saturday, Conley told reporters that Trump was 72 hours into his diagnosis, suggesting that it was completed before the early morning of Friday when Trump revealed his positive test.
Trump’s medical staff also said that 48 hours earlier, care was offered to the President, which would have been on Thursday before his positive diagnosis was revealed. The White House tried to justify the timelines, stating that Conley meant three days rather than 72 hours.
In asking whether Trump had ever obtained oxygen in the wake of his coronavirus diagnosis this week, Dr. Conley was elusive in answering. Conley was reluctant to provide further specifics on the President’s symptoms and the timeline of his illness, including the extent of his fever and the effects of the virus on the body of the 74-year-old.
He said that President Trump had not been on oxygen when he was with his squad but would not answer direct questions about Friday. Later, from an anonymous source, the Associated Press news agency announced that the President was supplied with extra oxygen while still at the White House, before being admitted to the hospital.
It was also revealed that on late Friday night, the President received Remdesivir. This antiviral drug has FDA emergency approval but is usually used by seriously ill patients with coronavirus in hospital. Dr. Conley said this was to maximize all aspects of care since the President does not want to hold back on anything and wanted to take anything that can fasten his recovery.
