PV International Desk : President Donald Trump is no longer contagious, nine days after being stopped in his tracks by Covid-19, his physician said in a statement released late Saturday.
“I am happy to report that in addition to the President meeting CDC criteria for the safe discontinuation of isolation, this morning’s COVID PCR sample demonstrates, by currently recognized standards, he is no longer considered a transmission risk to others,” the president’s physician Sean Conley said in the statement.
Conley, who has been accused of a lack of transparency with the public, said it had been 10 days since Trump first began showing symptoms of the new coronavirus. The president was hospitalized one day later, on October 2.
Tests showed there was “no longer evidence of actively replicating virus,” and that Trump’s viral load was “decreasing,” Conley continued — though he did not state that the president is now Covid-free.
