Donald Trump: President's physician says he is doing 'very well' after being diagnosed with coroanvirus

White House physician Sean Conley said the President was doing “very well” after being hospitalised with Covid-19 yesterday.

Mr Trump was taken from the White House to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Centre last night in a move described by his doctors as “an over-abundance of caution.”

This afternoon Dr Conley and a multidisciplinary team gathered outside the medical centre to update the public on the President's condition.

Since then, several members of the White House staff and senior Republican Party officials have also tested positive.

Dr Conley said he was “doing great” and that he had been fever-free for the last 24 hours.

The team confirmed that Mr Trump has not required oxygen, and was not having difficulty breathing.
