DOCTOR SAYS TRUMP IS READY TO RETURN TO PUBLIC EVENTS FROM SATURDAY
Donald Trump will be able to return to public events from Saturday, his doctor announced late on Thursday, saying the United States president’s condition after being diagnosed with COVID-19 had improved.
Dr Sean Conley said Trump had “responded extremely well to treatment” and that “since returning home, his physical exam has remained stable and devoid of any indications to suggest progression of illness”.
Conley said that Saturday marks 10 days since Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19 on October 1, and he “fully anticipate[s] the president’s safe return to public engagements at that time”.
Guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say a person who tests positive for COVID-19 can be around others again 10 days after his or her symptoms first appeared.
