A major medical expert, former Baltimore Health Commissioner Leana Wen, said that Trump will most likely survive covid, as we read in a report from the Baltimore Sun:
Former Baltimore Health Commissioner Leana Wen said in a CNN appearance on Friday morning that President Donald Trump is likely to recover from COVID-19, but questioned the timeline surrounding his diagnosis.
“Even for someone who is older like the president in his 70s, with chronic medical conditions like obesity and heart disease, of course they are at higher risk for severe outcomes from COVID-19, but still, chances are he will make a complete recovery,” said Wen, who has been a frequent national commentator during the pandemic.
Still, there’s a long road ahead, Wen said, as Americans wait to hear if Trump develops symptoms like shortness of breath and lowered oxygen saturation levels, or requires hospitalization due to COVID-19. The president announced Friday that he and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the virus.
