US President Donald Trump can probably participate in public events again from Saturday, according to his personal physician.
Trump has completed his treatment for the coronavirus and responded “extremely well” to what he received, Dr Sean Conley said in a message circulated by the White House.
According to Conley, Trump’s health has remained stable since he returned to Washington on Tuesday after spending three days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
The president tested positive for the lung virus last week and received experimental treatment with synthetic antibodies from Regeneron.
On Saturday it will be ten days since Trump was found to be infected, Conley says. “I fully expect the president to return safely to public affairs at that point,” said the White House physician.
With 26 days left until the presidential election on November 3, Trump will soon want to re-enter the country to hold electoral rallies and mobilize his constituency. In the national polls, the Republican is well behind his Democratic rival Joe Biden.
