President Trump announced this afternoon he will leave the hospital by 6:30 pm ET Monday.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

Below is a live stream of a briefing by his doctors at Walter Reed hospital. While he is not out of the woods, his vital signs have been good, he is feeling quite well, and he is maintaining a full schedule.
He remains on steroids and continues to receive injections of the anti-viral drug remdesivir.
His physician. Dr. Sean Conley, said doctors will continue to monitor him, are guardedly optimistic, and won’t have a sense that he is safe for another week. Conley refused to say what lung scans of the president had show, citing patient privacy rules.
Trump will not be able to return to campaigning until he is free of the virus, Conley said.
Trump is in “uncharted” terriroty, according to one doctor, who noted that he had been treated more aggressively, with earlier administration of strong drugs, than other patients.
