Donald Trump shared a video message from hospital on Saturday evening, warning the “next few days will be the real test” in his fight against coronavirus.
The four-minute video follows a day of confusion over his condition with doctors saying he’s doing well, but the White House chief of staff saying his vitals are “very concerning and the next 48 hours is critical.”
“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well. I’m feeling much better now,” Trump said.
“I’m starting to feel good. You don’t know over the period of a few days – I guess that’s the real test.”
“We’ll be seeing what happens over the next couple of days.”
He added that he’ll “‘be back soon” and will “finish the campaign.”
Trump was flown to Walter Reed hospital on Friday, just hours after he first revealed he tested positive for COVID-19.
The White House doctor said Trump has been given the experimental drug Remdesivir.
It comes after Trump reportedly asked aides if he was doing to die from Covid while being airlifted to hospital – as a top official said his vitals are “very concerning” and the next 48 hours are “critical”.
It came on a morning of confusion over the President’s health as White House medics insisted he was in “great spirits” but Chief of Staff Mark Meadows suggested his condition had significantly deteriorated.
