It was a very interesting experience, I learned a lot about COVID. I learned a lot, literally going to school. This is the real school, the school of reality, not the school where you learn from books.” said US president trump.
The president is doing very well, according to his doctor
The president’s vital signs are stable, the hospital’s medical team said earlier on Sunday.
The president’s oxygen level has dropped twice since the onset of symptoms, but he’s better and no longer has a fever, White House doctor Sean Conley said.
Donald Trump could be released from the hospital on Monday, according to what the medical team said during this press briefing.
As with any illness, there are ups and downs, however, noted Dr Sean Conley, acknowledging that he tried to downplay the severity of the president’s condition on Saturday.

Dr. Sean Conley: “Right now he is not on oxygen”
Q: “You keep saying right now — but should we read into the fact that he had been previously?”
