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.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Florida state health officials, are investigating what is believed to be a case of monkeypox. A statement from the Florida Department of Health in Broward County stated the “case is related to international travel, and the person remains isolated.”

Late Friday a New York City resident also tested positive for the virus that causes monkeypox, and is the state’s first confirmed case. On Sunday, President Joe Biden made his first public statements about the outbreaks, saying the recent spread of monkeypox in at least 12 countries are “something that everybody should be concerned about.”

Axios reports a person was confirmed positive with the virus in Massachusetts, New York and “roughly a half dozen other cases” are “being monitored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
