Coronavirus: Trump tells Americans not to let COVID-19 ‘dominate you,’ says he’s feeling better

U.S. President Donald Trump released a pre-recorded video posted after returning to the White House following his Walter Reed Medical Center stay due to testing positive for COVID-19 last week. Trump told Americans he was feeling much better and not to let COVID-19 “dominate you.” He went on to tout medical equipment and treatments he said are being made available and said “they” will be able to beat it. He added that having had COVID-19, “maybe I’m immune?” Trump’s comments came after he had been admitted on Friday to Walter Reed Medical Center. His medical team, including physician Dr. Sean Conley, said between early Friday and Monday, Trump had received supplemental oxygen twice. They said he was also on remdesivir and dexamethasone and had been given an experimental antibody cocktail on Friday before his trip to Walter Reed, made by the company Regeneron Pharmaceuticals.
