According to his personal doctor, US President Donald Trump is no longer contagious after his Covid 19 disease.

President Donald Trump may be eagerly seeking a return to normal after three nights in the hospital. But the White House he arrived home to Monday with dramatic and reckless flourish has changed drastically since he was airlifted off the South Lawn at the end of last week.

Conley referred to Trump's latest test from Saturday morning. Trump, who is running for a second term on November 3, has already planned major campaign appearances from Monday.

Trump can now, around ten days after the appearance of the first symptoms, end his voluntary quarantine in accordance with the criteria of the CDC health authority, the doctor said. The tests in the course of his illness had shown a steadily decreasing virus concentration, Conley continued. He will continue to watch Trump, who is returning to "his active schedule".

Trump has not had a fever for "well over 24 hours" and "all symptoms" have "improved", the doctor wrote.

However, he did not provide any information about which symptoms were still detectable in Trump and to what extent. In addition, Conley never explicitly wrote that the latest corona test at Trump was negative. It therefore seemed possible that the most recent test was still positive because of a low virus concentration.

When can Trump have been infected? Unclear things remain

The 74-year-old Trump said he had tested positive for the corona virus on October 1. However, the White House never announced when Trump's regular corona tests were last negative. Trump fell ill with Covid-19 and was therefore treated for three days in a military hospital from October 2. There doctors gave him the antiviral drug remdesivir, anti-inflammatory drugs and an experimental antibody cocktail, among other things. According to many experts, the aggressive treatment - contrary to the representation of the White House - suggested a more serious illness.

Biden's program was "socialist" or even "communist" and would plunge the country into crisis, claimed Trump. The Democrat is not able to rule the country, said Trump. In polls a good three weeks before the election, the president is behind Biden, 77, a former senator and ex-vice president.
