White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told Fox News Monday that President Donald Trump’s condition amid his COVID-19 diagnosis is still improving and he’s “optimistic” that Trump “will be able to return to the White House later today,” according to Fox News Chief White House Correspondent John Roberts. Trump’s doctors also said the President could be released Monday if his condition continued to improve.

The President began his treatment shortly after being diagnosed with COVID-19 and after he was transferred from the White House to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday. During his treatment at the hospital, Trump has received a cocktail of drugs including the anti-viral medication Remdesivir, monoclonal antibodies, and an anti-inflammatory steroid dexamethasone. Trump also reportedly briefly received oxygen when his levels dropped on Friday.

Trump has been in good spirits and is still working in his official capacity, according to his doctors and the President himself, who has been delivering messages to his Twitter followers in videos he’s posted to his Twitter profile throughout the weekend. Trump also surprised a number of his supporters stationed outside of the hospital Sunday with a motorcade drive by.

Breaking Friday, Florida’s Board of Medicine and state Board of Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery for minors in the state.

“The chief point of agreement among all of the experts — and I must emphasize this — is that there is a pressing need for additional, high-quality clinical research,” said the board of medicine’s chair, Dr. David A. Diamond, a radiation oncologist.

More than 70 percent of children with gender dysphoria “typically outgrow” it, City Journal reported earlier this year.

National Review reports:

The board of medicine voted 6-3, with five others not present, on Friday to forbid doctors from prescribing puberty blockers and hormones or performing surgeries until a patient is 18. Exceptions will be made for children who are already receiving the treatment.

The Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine also voted to ban the use of puberty blockers and sex-reassignment surgery in new patients who are minors but allowed an exception for children enrolled in clinical studies.

Florida is also one of at least nine states that prohibits Medicaid coverage of gender-transition services.
