The course of COVID-19 can be highly variable, but the next three to five days are likely to be crucial, physicians who have treated hundreds of coronavirus patients told USA TODAY.

Several days after symptoms of COVID-19 appear, the body's immune system must make an important switch to fight the virus with precision — or possibly face life-threatening consequences.

COVID-19 patients can “look pretty good for a few days, then they go south,” said Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease specialist at Vanderbilt University.

That rapid deterioration can occur when the body's immune system, unable to successfully target the virus, causes widespread collateral damage as it “brings in the troops,” Schaffner said.

NFL reportedly discussing playoff bubble following coronavirus cases

That is still on the table, at least for the postseason. © Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports Discussions about playing games in a postseason bubble have picked up for the NFL internally, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The most viable plan would involve the two conference championship games being played in a bubble.

Donald Trump wearing a suit and tie: The world is waking up to the news that the President of the United States and the First Lady have tested positive for COVID-19. With the global pandemic associated with the SARS-CoV-2 virus seemingly never-ending, the world has become accustomed to famous people being stricken with the virus. It certainly adds levels of complexity for the country as the President has to grapple with it.The news that the President is COVID-19 positive certainly reaffirms the reality that viruses infect indiscriminately. As an Emergency Physician, I have been discussing the risks associated with worse outcomes with COVID-19 with my patients on a daily basis. Althought he is said to be doing

Conley on Saturday said Trump is in his third day of fighting the virus.

During the early part of a patient's COVID-19 illness, the body uses an "agnostic" immune response, said Dr. Greg Poland, director and founder of Mayo Clinic Vaccine Research Group. It doesn't know what it's fighting, but realizes something potentially dangerous is occurring. That's called the innate immune system.

Key to a successful recovery is an immune response that targets the coronavirus itself. That's called the adaptive immune system.

To avoid serious illness, a patient's innate and adaptive immune systems must stay in balance, and the virus itself must not cause serious complications along the way.

Mr Trump tweeted "going well , I think!" after his arrival. US media say his symptoms include a low-grade fever.

Age is a risk factor. Older patients tend to be less successful in activating the adaptive response, according to Melissa Nolan, an infectious disease expert and professor at the University of South Carolina.

Trump turned 74 in June, putting him at 90-times higher risk of death than someone in their 20s, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

But the course of COVID-19 can be highly variable. The president's VIP medical treatment and access to cutting-edge therapies make the trajectory of the illness even tougher to predict.

Patients tend to see short-term fluctuations in their symptoms throughout their illness, so doctors often evaluate a COVID-19 patient's progress over the course of days, said Dr. David Eisenman, a professor at UCLA Fielding School of Public Health. As of Saturday evening, the information released by the White House was not enough for him to evaluate Trump's progress thus far.

Curtis said the fact that the president’s fever is improving is a good sign but doesn’t necessarily indicate he’s out of trouble.
