Dr. Sean Conley said Trump, 74, did not need supplemental oxygen Thursday, Friday or Saturday but he danced around the question of whether he had been on oxygen before that.

Conley also said Trump’s fever is gone, though he would not say how high his temperature had been.

“This morning, the president is doing very well,” Conley said outside Walter Reed National Medical Center in the first briefing since Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Thursday.

The president’s oxygen-saturation rate was 96 percent, which is not in the danger zone. “He’s not having difficulty breathing or walking about,” a pulmonologist, Dr. Sean Dooley, said.
