US President Donald Trump has recovered from Covid-19 and can return to public engagements this weekend, BBC reported.
The president had responded “extremely well” to medication and had “remained stable”, said Trump’s physician.
Trump earlier pulled out of next Thursday’s TV debate with Democratic rival Joe Biden after organizers said it would have to be a virtual event.
The move sparked a row about how and when further debates would take place.
In a memo released by the White House on Thursday evening, Dr Conley said Trump was displaying no signs “to suggest progression of illness”.
“Saturday will be day 10 since last Thursday’s diagnosis, and based on the trajectory of advanced diagnostics the team has been conducting, I fully anticipate the president’s safe return to public engagements at that time,” the memo added.
