Trump Says He's Returning To White House After 3 Days Of COVID-19 Treatment

President Donald Trump said that he plans to leave Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on Monday (October 5) evening. President Trump was taken to Walter Reed on Friday after he was diagnosed with COVID-19.

"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," Trump tweeted.

President Trump's physician, Dr. Sean Conley said that President Trump's condition has improved since Friday and that it is safe for him to return to the White House. He cautioned that Trump is not "out of the woods" and will be monitored by medical professionals at all times.

"Though he may not be entirely out of the woods yet, the team and I agree that all our evaluations, and most importantly, his clinical status, support the president's safe return home," Conley said.

Earlier in the day, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said the president was continuing "to improve overnight and is ready to get back to a normal working schedule."

First Lady Melania Trump, who also tested positive for COVID-19, is quarantining in the White House and is doing well.

"My family is grateful for all of the prayers & support! I am feeling good & will continue to rest at home. Thank you to medical staff & caretakers everywhere, & my continued prayers for those who are ill or have a family member impacted by the virus," she tweeted.
