Donald Trump’s doctors offered another upbeat assessment of his health Sunday, saying the president may be heading home from hospital Monday, three days after he tested positive for COVID-19 and sent shock waves through U.S. politics.
But they also admitted to earlier being less than forthcoming about his condition, neglecting to mention that Trump’s blood-oxygen levels had twice dropped below normal and that he was briefly on supplemental oxygen.

Meanwhile, news that he had been given a steroid treatment proven effective for the sickest of patients left some Canadian experts scratching their heads.
Either the president is in worse shape than described, or the steroid therapy was offered too early in the illness, said the infectious-disease specialists.
“Essentially, they’re treating him like he has severe COVID-19, but intimating he has only mild disease, (a) fundamental ?disconnect,” said Dr. Gerald Evans, head of Queen’s University’s infectious diseases division. “The fact that he has worrisome features like high fever and hypoxemia (low blood-oxygen levels) early in his illness, suggests the possibility that a more severe second course may yet be in the future.”
