President Donald Trump‘s doctor says he will be able to return to ‘public engagements’ on Saturday, which would be just over a week after the president first announced he had tested positive for coronavirus.
White House Physician Dr. Sean Conley also released Trump’s vital signs for the first time since he became infected, showing a pulse, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level all within normal ranges.
Trump was first diagnosed with COVID-19 last Thursday, and was moved to Walter Reed Medical Center on Friday before returning to the White House on Monday evening.
‘Since returning home, his physical exam has remained stable and devoid of any indications to suggested progression of illness.,’ Conley said in a memo released by the White House on Thursday night.

‘Overall he’s responded extremely well to treatment, without evidence on examination of adverse therapeutic effects.
‘Saturday will be day 10 since Thursday’s diagnosis, and based on the trajectory of advanced diagnostics the team has been conducting, I fully anticipate the President’s safe return to public engagements at that time.’
The memo showed Trump’s resting pulse was 69 beats per minute, which is at the lower end of normal range. His blood pressure of 127/81 mm Hg is slightly elevated over normal levels, but does not qualify a hypertensive.
Conley said that Trump’s breathing rate was normal, and that his blood oxygen level was 96 to 98 percent without supplemental oxygen, which is well within the normal range.
Curiously, the memo did not include Trump’s body temperature. Last week, Trump reportedly spiked a fever, and his blood oxygen level dropped alarmingly, leading to his transfer to Walter Reed.
