Donald Trump greets supporters outside hospital

5 October 2020, Washington

US President Donald Trump has greeted supporters gathered outside the hospital where he is being treated with Covid-19 by riding past in a motorcade, BBC reported.

Wearing a mask, the president waved from inside a car moments after tweeting that he would pay a “surprise visit”.

Trump, who has been criticized for his handling of the pandemic, also said he had learned a lot about the virus.

Earlier, his doctors said Trump continued to improve and might be discharged as early as Monday.

Dr Sean Conley said the president’s oxygen level dropped twice since his diagnosis, and he was started on a steroid called dexamethasone.

The president was given extra oxygen at least once after testing positive, said Dr Conley, who also sought to clarify earlier confusion caused by conflicting statements about Trump’s condition.
