Folks on the left and in media have truly been losing it over President Donald Trump getting the Wuhan coronavirus.

They are rife with conspiracy theories and seemingly hoping things go bad.

But they had their hopes dashed with yet another good report from the doctors on Sunday morning.

They gave more detail of the various ups and downs the president had suffered since his diagnosis late Thursday night, including noting that he had two transient dips in oxygen saturation where his oxygen saturation levels dipped, one time to 93. That was the initial dip on Friday morning that caused them to give him some brief oxygen. Even though, he immediately did better, that was why they decided to take him to the hospital to get a fuller evaluation and monitor him. The doctors said that the two drops were transient and brief. Since then he’s only had mild symptoms and oxygen levels in the high 90s. Normal is over 95.

Dr. Sean Dooley, the pulmonologist said all Trump’s’ vitals, cardiac, kidney and liver functions were normal and despite the transient dips that he has not had any shortness of breath. The doctor said Trump was walking around the presidential hospital suite without any problems.

He’s doing so well, they said he might even get out as soon as tomorrow.

Dr. Brian Garibaldi, with Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, said Trump has completed his second dose of Remdesivir and has exhibited no side effect as far as his team can tell. His team will therefore continue plans to keep him on the medication over a five-day period. In response to transient low oxygen levels, the president also has begun dexamethasone treatment and was given his first dose Saturday.

Garibaldi said the team remains hopeful to plan for the president to be discharged “as soon as tomorrow,” so he can continue treatment at the White House.

Dexamethasone is a steroid given to decrease/prevent inflammation in the lungs.

The White House also released pictures of Trump working at the hospital

During his video he released yesterday, he indicated he was eager to get back to work and he made a joke about the First Lady doing better than him because she was just “slightly” younger, he said with a little smile.
