President Donald Trump’s COVID Treatment

Oct. 2, 2020 (EIRNS)—At 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 2, President Donald Trump tweeted a brief video statement, in which he said, “I want to thank everyone for their tremendous support. I’m going to Walter Reed Hospital. I think I’m doing very well, but we’re going to make sure that things work out. The First Lady is doing very well. So, thank you very much. I appreciate it, I will never forget it. Thank you.” Trump walked to his helicopter, Marine One, in which he flew to Walter Reed Medical Center. He exited the helicopter and walked into the hospital, where he will be staying for at least a few days. He continues to fulfill his duties from the facility’s Presidential Suite. No announcement has been made about him temporarily turning over his duties to Vice President Pence.

Earlier in the afternoon, Dr. Sean Conley, Physician to the President, released an update on President Trump’s condition and treatment:

“Following PCR-confirmation of the President’s diagnosis, as a precautionary measure he received a single 8 gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail. He completed the infusion without incident. In addition to the polyclonal antibodies, the President has been taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin.

“As of this afternoon the President remains fatigued but in good spirits. He’s being evaluated by a team of experts, and together we’ll be making recommendations to the President and First Lady in regard to next best steps.

“First Lady Melania Trump remains well with only a mild cough and headache, and the remainder of the First Family are well and tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 today.”
