U.S. leader Donald Trump has miraculously beaten COVID-19 and he is now immune to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according to his doctor.
The President and his wife Melania tested positive for the virus on Thursday, Oct. 1, and he was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland late Friday after experiencing mild flu-like symptoms. He spent three days receiving treatment at the hospital and returned to the White House on Monday.
On Wednesday, Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, revealed the President continues to show no symptoms of COVID-19 and also appears to have antibodies for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease.
Antibodies are proteins produced by the body’s immune system that bind to specific invaders (virus) and removes them from the body.
“The President this morning says, ‘I feel great!'” Dr. Conley explained in an official statement to the media on Wednesday. “His physical exam and vital signs, including oxygen saturation and respiratory rate, all remain stable and in normal range.
“He’s now been fever-free for more than 4 days, symptom-free for over 24 hours, and has not needed nor received any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization.”
Trump remains in isolation in the residence of the White House and he has assured his supporters he will be back on the campaign trail and debating Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Miami, Florida next week.
Biden told reporters he believes Trump should cancel their next debate in Miami if he still tests positive for the coronavirus.
