White House doctor says Trump has improved after oxygen drops Friday and Saturday — he could be discharged Monday


President Donald Trump experienced two drops in his oxygen levels over the course of his coronavirus illness but his condition has continued to improve, Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, said on Sunday. 

Dr. Conley said Trump was doing well Thursday night into Friday morning and was only experiencing mild symptoms with his blood oxygen levels in the high 90s. 

Conley said Trump was given supplemental oxygen on Friday because his oxygen saturation levels dropped below 94%. The president’s blood oxygen level is currently at 98%, Conley said.

On Saturday, Trump’s oxygen saturation dipped to about 93%, the doctor said. The doctors monitored Trump and his oxygen levels went back up. 

Trump could be discharged as early as tomorrow to continue his treatment at the White House, the doctors said.
