White House press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, has sent just sent out a new update on Trump, from his doctor Sean Conley.
Conley says Trump has made “substantial progress since his diagnosis” and has just taken his second dose of Remdesivir “without complication”.
“He remains fever free and off supplemental oxygen with a saturation level between 96% and 98% all day. He spent most of the day conducting business and has been up and moving about the medical suite without difficulty. While not out of the woods yet, the team remains cautiously optimistic. The plan for tomorrow is to continue observation in between doses of Remdesivir, closely monitoring his clinical status while fully supporting his conduct of Presidential duties.”

AP: US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is committing to releasing the results of all future Covid-19 tests the candidate takes.
Biden spokesman Andrew Bates repeated on Saturday evening that the former vice president is tested regularly. But before President Donald Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis earlier this week Biden had not disclosed full details of his testing protocol or the results of each test.
