Less than a week after being diagnosed with the COVID-19 virus, President Trump is not only symptom-free, recent blood tests show the presence of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, meaning he is developing natural immunity to the virus.
A physical exam of the President revealed that his vital signs –including oxygen saturation levels and respiratory rate – are stable and within a normal range. Additionally, President Trump has been free of COVID symptoms for a full four days, a memo released by White House physician Dr. Sean P. Conley stated.
“Of note today, the President’s labs demonstrated detectable levels of SARS-CoV-2 IgG antibodies from labs drawn Monday, October 5th; initial IgG levels drawn late Thursday night were undetectable,” Dr. Sean P. Conley said. “He’s now been fever-free for more than 4 days, symptom-free for more than 4 days, and has not needed or received any supplemental oxygen since initial hospitalization.”
The presence of antibodies in the President’s bloodstream means his immune system is fighting and winning the battle against the virus.
In a tweet Monday evening after being discharged from Walter Reed Army Medical Center and returning to the White House, President Trump suggested he may have developed immunity to the virus, saying, “Now I’m better and maybe I’m immune.”
Several studies from respected institutions, including the Universities of Arizona and Washington, indicate that the human body can develop a lasting immunity to the COVID-19 virus, even in individuals who experience only mild symptoms or are asymptomatic.
