President Donald Trump began his third day of hospitalization on Sunday as he and his health team sought to clarify statements and clear up any confusion about the seriousness of his fight with COVID-19.

Navy Commander Dr. Sean Conley began the update by saying that the President had moments of dropping oxygen levels but never dropped lower than 93-94%. Dr. Conley says President Donald Trump was treated with the steroid dexamethasone after the drops. Conley says the President did not feel short of breath despite the drops in oxygen.

“The president has continued to improve,” Conley said.

The president’s medical team is hoping President Trump will be up, out of bed, and eating and drinking throughout the day.

Dr. Conley assured that other than mild symptoms, President Trump is in very good condition and that he could be discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as soon as Monday.
