Memorandum for: Kayleigh McEnany,
Assistant to the President and White House press secretary
From: Sean P. Conley, DO, FACEP,
Physician to the President
Commander, U.S. Navy
Subject: Saturday Health Update on President Donald J. Trump
I release the following information with the permission of President Donald J. Trump.
This evening I am happy to report that in addition to the President meeting CDC criteria for the safe discontinuation of isolation, this morning’s COVID PCR sample demonstrates, by currently recognized standards, he is no longer considered a transmission risk to others. Now at day 10 from symptom onset, fever-free for well over 24 hours and all symptoms improved, the assortment of advanced diagnostic tests obtained reveal there is no longer evidence of actively replicating virus. In addition, sequential testing throughout his illness has demonstrated decreasing viral loads that correlate with increasing cycle threshold times, as well as decreasing and now undetectable subgenomic mRNA.
Moving forward, I will continue to monitor him clinically as he returns to an active schedule.
