President Donald Trump returned from the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, on October 5, after a three-day stay for COVID-19 treatment.
A Marine Corps helicopter could be seen taking off from the medical center after the President was seen departing the building.
Trump tweeted earlier that day that he would be leaving the center.
“Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!” he said.
White House physician Sean Conley said the President had "met or exceeded all standard discharge criteria. He’ll receive another dose of Remdesivir [an antiviral medication] here today and then we plan to get him home.”
Several members of Trump’s inner circle, including White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, had tested positive for COVID-19 however, it was not known at the time how the President contracted the virus. Credit: Brendan Gutenschwager via Storyful
