White House doctor Sean Conley stated this evening that President Trump is no longer a transmission risk to others, after being diagnosed with COVID-19 last week.
In part, the release reads:
“This evening I am happy to report that in addition to the President meeting CDC criteria for the safe discontinuation of isolation, this morning’s COVID PCR sample demonstrates, by currently recognized standards, he is no longer considered a transmission risk to others. Now at day 10 from symptom to onset, fever-free for well over 24 hours and all symptoms improved, the assortment of advanced diagnostic tests obtained reveal there is no longer evidence of actively replicating virus. In addition, sequential testing throughout his illness has demonstrated decreasing viral loads that correlate with increasing cycle threshold times, as well as decreasing and now undetectable subgenomic mRNA.”
It appears the president is not only well on his way to recovery, but has a good deal of his COVID recovery in his rearview mirror.
Congratulations to the president on his recovery, and hope that others within the White House, including the First Lady, will have similar results to report soon.
