WASHINGTON, USA – President Donald Trump on Monday exclaimed to “get out there” and not be afraid of coronavirus, according to sources, after he returned to the White House following four days of treatment for COVID-19 at a U.S. military hospital.
Trump, who was landed at the hospital on Friday, was discharged Monday evening from Walter Reed Medical Center near Washington, “making the short helicopter ride to the White House where he is to continue his treatment.”
“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,” he said in a tweet Tuesday morning. “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 described his condition.

United States President Donald Trump “continues to do well, having made substantial progress” since COVID-19 diagnosis, according to a release by White House Press Secretary Saturday night.
“This evening he completed his second dose of Remdesivir without complication,” the statement read. “He remains fever-free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96 and 98% all day.”
“He spent most of the afternoon conducting business, and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty,” the statement further said.
The release came after feverish and fatigued President was “flown to a military hospital Friday night where he is being given Remdesivir therapy after being injected with an experimental drug combination in treatment at the White House,” as AP reported.
“Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!” he wrote in his first tweet from the hospital Friday night.
Just a month before the presidential election, Trump’s announcement that he was positive for the virus came by a tweet about 1 a.m. Friday after he had returned from a Thursday afternoon political fundraiser.
First lady Melania Trump also tested positive, the president said, triggering concern that the White House or even Trump himself might have spread the virus further.
