President Trump Gives Update After Being Transferred To Walter Reed Medical Hospital

President Trump has given an update on his health following his transfer to Walter Reed Military Medical Hospital, telling his supporters that he is doing “well.”

Trump tweeted on Friday evening, just before midnight: “Going well, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”

Sean Conley, U.S. Navy Commander and physician to the president, released a statement on Friday evening saying the president is “doing very well.”

“I release the following information with the permission of President Donald J. Trump,” the statement read.

It continued: “Following PCR-confirmation fo the President’s diagnosis, as a precautionary measure he received a single 8-gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail. He completed the infusion without incident. In addition to the polyclonal antibodies, the President has been taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin, and a daily aspirin.”

“As of this afternoon the President remains fatigued but in good spirits. He’s being evaluated by a team of experts, and together we’ll be making recommendations to the President and First Lady in regards to next best steps,” Conley said.

The physician also gave an update of First Lady Melania’s health, who he said only has “a mild cough and [a] headache.”
