Doctors at Walter Reed Medical Center announced at a Monday afternoon press conference that President Donald Trump will be leaving the military hospital and heading back to the White House in the evening.
While the head doctor, Dr. Sean Conley, said that his condition has been “improving,” he noted that the President “may not entirely be out of the woods yet.” He will be taken care of by the White House’s 24-hour medical unit.
Additionally, President Trump has received three doses of Remdesivir and will receive a fourth dose before he departs for the White House at 6:30 pm, Dr. Brian Garibaldi mentioned. He then added that: “We’ve made arrangements to deliver the fifth and final dose of his treatment course at the White House tomorrow evening.”
When asked about the president’s fever, Conley said that: “He has not been on any fever-reducing medication for 72 hours.”
It remains unknown how long Trump will be held up in the White House for, as the presidential election is less than 30 days away.
Dr. Conley also responded to reporters’ questions regarding whether Trump’s driveby of supporters camped outside the hospital on Sunday followed protocol, to which the doctor said that it was carried out safely and that no Secret Service agents were infected.
This follows President Trump announcing in a tweet prior to the 3 pm press conference this news, who also urged people to not be afraid of the virus, despite scientists estimating that a vaccine won’t be available until sometime next year.
“I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M,” the president wrote. “Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!”
Dr. Conley was asked to respond to the President saying not to be afraid of Coronavirus, but he declined to answer.
This is a developing story.

Stacy Abrams: ‘No such thing as heartbeat at 6 weeks’, ‘manufactured’ for men to ‘take control of a woman’s body’
“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks,” Abrams claimed during an event at the Ray Charles Performing Arts Center in Atlanta last week. “It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”
As National Review reports, even her own man-hating rhetoric is antithetical to the website of Planned Parenthood which said a “very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop” during the fifth to sixth week of pregnancy.
Planned Parenthood later amended its website to more closely reflect pro-abortion messaging against heartbeat laws, which ban abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Now the site says a “part of the embryo starts to show cardiac activity” during that time.
Abrams is running for governor in Georgia in a rematch against incumbent Governor Brian Kemp. Abrams lost to Kemp in 2018 by more than 54,000 votes. Additionally, Abrams has never concededto Kemp and has claimed the 2018 election was “stolen from Georgians.”
Abrams words were to suggest that Georgia’s heartbeat law shouldn’t be referred to as the “Fetal Heartbeat Bill.” Her reasoning? Because “that’s medically false, biologically a lie.”
When The View co-host Alyssa Farah asked Abrams “Do you think there should be any legal limits on abortion, such as the third trimester or viability?” Abrams responded: “I believe that abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision…Arbitrary politically-defined timelines are deeply problematic because they ignore the reality of medical and physiological issues.”
“Abortion is a medical decision, not a political decision … The limit should not be made by politicians who don’t understand basic biology or apparently basic morality,” she added.
Kemp is up 6.6 percentage points in RCP polling average over Abrams.
