President Trump Pays Surprise Visit To Supporters Outside Hospital (Video)
US President Donald Trump has surprised supporters gathered outside the hospital where he is being treated with Covid-19 by riding past in a motorcade.
Wearing a mask, the president waved inside a car moments after tweeting that he would pay a “surprise visit”..
Mr Trump, who has been criticised for his handling of the pandemic, also said he had learned a lot about the virus.
Earlier, his doctors said Mr Trump continued to improve and might be discharged as early as Monday.
Dr Sean Conley said the president’s oxygen level dropped twice since his diagnosis, and he was started on a steroid called dexamethasone.
The president was given extra oxygen at least once after testing positive, said Dr Conley, who also sought to clarify earlier confusion caused by conflicting statements about Mr Trump’s condition.
In a tweet, the president – dressed in a suit jacket and shirt with no tie – said: “I learned a lot about Covid. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn’t the let’s read the books school. I get it and I understand it. It’s a very interesting thing, I’ll be letting you know about it.”
The president’s diagnosis, which he made public in a tweet early on Friday, has upended his election campaign. Mr Trump faces Democratic challenger Joe Biden on 3 November.
What did the doctors say?
Speaking at a news conference at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center close to Washington DC, Dr Conley said Mr Trump’s oxygen level dropped for the first time on Friday morning at the White House.
The president had a high fever, he said, and an oxygen level below 94% – a healthy person’s level is 95% or higher.
The president was given supplemental oxygen “for about an hour”, the doctor said, and was flown to Walter Reed in the evening. The news had already been widely reported in US media, and Dr Conley’s confirmation came after he refused to answer several questions about the issue during Saturday’s briefing.
The second episode happened on Saturday, when the level dropped below 93%. When questioned, Dr Conley did not say whether the president had received oxygen but added that, if it had happened, “it was very limited”.
The team, Dr Conley said, decided to give Mr Trump dexamethasone, which is shown in studies to improve survival for patients in hospital with severe Covid-19.
