Trump "symptom-free for over 24 hours," says doctor

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Donald Trump, who is recovering from COVID-19 at the White House, has been "symptom-free for over 24 hours," his doctor said on Wednesday.

In a new memo on the president's condition, White House physician Sean Conley wrote that "his physical exam and vital signs, including oxygen saturation and respiratory rate, all remain stable and in normal range."

"He's now been fever-free for more than 4 days, symptom-free for over 24 hours, and has not needed nor received any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization," the doctor disclosed.

He also said Trump's lab results from Monday "demonstrated detectable levels" of COVID-19 antibodies.

The president tested positive for the virus on Oct. 1 and was later admitted to a military hospital for treatment. He returned to the White House on Monday.
