He also expressed happiness at knowing that the other staff members who had contracted the disease in the Vice President Secretariat had also recovered from Coronavirus.

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu has credited his speedy recovery from Coronavirus to his physical fitness, mental tenacity and desi food. In a long blog posted from his facebook account, the Vice President said that he firmly believed that it was his physical fitness and strict adherence to traditional food which ensured his recovery from the disease despite his old age and him being a diabetes patient.

“I could overcome COVID-19 infection because of my physical fitness, mental tenacity, regular physical exercise like walking and yoga, apart from eating only desi (traditional) food,” the Vice President wrote in his blog. He also said that he always preferred to eat traditional food and continued the practice during the quarantine period

Is the president still contagious? Probably not, experts say

Less than two weeks after President Donald Trump announced that he tested positive for Covid-19, he is back on the campaign trail, appearing maskless while boarding Air Force One and before crowds at a Florida rally.

That has caused some alarm, but doctors say that what we know about the coronavirus and the president’s medical tests mean he’s probably not contagious anymore.

Trump’s doctors announced Monday that the president is “not infectious to others” after undergoing a series of tests that are used to determine if a patient is at risk of transmitting the coronavirus. Though Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s physician, has repeatedly sowed doubt and confusion by dodging questions and withholding details of the president’s diagnosis and treatment, experts say Conley’s assessment lines up with what’s known about the Covid-19 recovery process.

In a memo released Monday, Conley said the president tested negative on rapid antigen tests

Is it safe for President Trump to return to the campaign trail?

President Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Thursday night that he is planning to hold a rally in Florida Saturday, which would put the president in front of a crowd a little over a week after he was taken to the hospital for COVID-19. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, people with COVID-19 remain contagious for 10 to 20 days after their onset of symptoms, depending on the severity of the case. The president’s personal physician, Dr. Sean Conley wrote in a White House memo, released hours before Mr. Trump’s own announcement, that Saturday will be 10 days since Mr. Trump’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 White House has said that the president began experiencing symptoms on Thursday, October 1, and tested

White House won’t say when President Trump last tested negative for COVID-19

The White House has also declined to confirm when and how Trump was tested before last Tuesday’s presidential debate with Joe Biden, even though both campaigns certified to debate organizers that the candidates and everyone who traveled with them to Cleveland tested negative within 72 hours of the debate.

“I don’t want to go backwards,” Dr. Sean Conley, Trump’s White House physician, said Monday when asked about the president’s last negative test results — one of at least seven times White House officials declined to answer the question since Friday.

Regeneron Asks FDA for Emergency Use Authorization of Coronavirus Therapy Used to Treat President Trump | Health News

Regeneron announced Wednesday night that it has asked the Food and Drug Administration for emergency use authorization for the experimental coronavirus antibody therapy used to treat President Donald Trump after he tested positive for the virus.

The biotechnology company said in a statement that it made that emergency use request for its REGN-COV2 investigational antibody combination for COVID-19. If the emergency authorization is granted, the government has committed to making it available to Americans at no cost and would be responsible for its distribution, the statement said.

Enough doses are currently available for 50,000 coronavirus patients, and the company expects to have 300,000 doses within the next several months.

The experimental treatment is still in large-scale clinical trials but has been available for compassionate use, something the FDA approves on a case-by-case basis, such as the case with the president.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has returned to the Oval Office for the first time since he was diagnosed with COVID-19.

Spokesman Brian Morgenstern confirmed that the president has returned to the Oval Office. He has been convalescing in the White House residence since he returned from a three-night hospital stay on Monday evening.

Trump is likely still contagious with the virus.

Morgenstern says of the Oval Office return that there are “certainly ways to do it without compromising anyone.”

White House officials say they have put additional safeguards in place to protect staff who may interact with the president, including requiring full personal protective equipment.

Donald Trump, M.D.: How the President Shapes His Treatment

President Donald Trump didn’t want to go to the hospital in the first place. Trump was admitted only after Chief of Staff Mark Meadows insisted he leave the White House when he spiked a fever Friday morning, was coughing and his blood oxygen level threatened to dip dangerously low, say two current White House officials. All along, Trump’s been a challenging patient, insisting on shaping the course of his care as well as stage managing how his health is projected to the public.

After being shuttled to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center by helicopter on Friday evening, Trump pressed to be sent home all weekend. He pushed his doctors to find a way to administer back at the White House the aggressive therapies he’s been receiving. On Monday, he announced his hospital discharge on Twitter hours before it happened, a tactic he’s often used to ram through a

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine wishes President Trump would wear a mask more

COLUMBUS – President Donald Trump’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis proves frequent testing isn’t a substitute for wearing a mask, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said Tuesday.

“I wish the president would wear the mask more,” DeWine told reporters. “I wish he’d wear it all the time when he was in public. I said that before he had the coronavirus.”

Trump revealed early Friday that he tested positive for COVID-19 and then spent three days at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. He returned to the White House Monday, tweeting “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”

DeWine said Ohioans should not be afraid of the virus, but they should not discount it either.

“Even the leader of our great country can get the virus,” DeWine said. “It can happen to anyone. No one is immune.”

Fauci warns president may relapse as deaths could double

CLOSE

President Donald Trump returned to the White House after three days at Walter Reed. He removed his mask on the steps of the balcony.

USA TODAY

President Donald Trump rolled out of Walter Reed hospital confidently urging the nation not to fear the coronavirus despite experts warning the U.S. death toll, at more than 210,000, could almost double by year’s end.

Experts also warn that the commander-in-chief himself may not have seen the worst of the virus just yet.

“Don’t be afraid of Covid,” Trump tweeted hours before his release Monday following a three-day hospital stay. “Don’t let it dominate your life.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease expert who for months has exhorted the nation to wear masks and social distance, told CNN that, while not likely, Trump could still face “a reversal – meaning, going in the wrong direction and get into trouble.”
