Recently, President Trump has opened up about his recovery from the virus. This was his first on-camera interview since he tested positive for the new coronavirus.
He stated that he’s now medication-free – he stopped taking them on Friday – and he is feeling really strong. Trump said he first went to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, on the 2nd of October, and that he “didn’t feel like the president of the U.S. should feel.”
He then returned to the White House on Monday. He spent three nights in the hospital, and he talked about the benefits of Regeneron’s experimental antibody cocktail. This was the medicine that made a difference in his recovery. He also had to do CT scans on his lungs but did not have any difficulty breathing.
“They wanted to keep me for observation. You know, they wanted to be sure it was good. But … I was there for, I guess, three-and-a-half days. They wanted to keep me. I wanted to leave after the first day. I really felt I was in not bad shape. After the first day, I think I would have been in much worse shape had I not taken this [Regeneron] medication,” said the President.
Trump had to deal with a lot of criticism last weekend after he waved to his supporters, who gathered outside the hospital. He recalled hearing the people shouting and screaming with “real love” through the windows. After two days, he wanted to go out and say hello to the people. He said how he went to Secret Service and how they allowed him to greet the people outside of the hospital.
