“I didn’t feel like the President of the US should feel and I knew there was something a little bit off … but I would say more weakness than anything else.”
Trump’s physicians said early in the illness his blood oxygen levels dipped at least twice but rose again after they administered oxygen. They also said he experienced a high fever.
But Trump said he feels well now and had been medication-free for eight hours at the time the interview with Fox News was taped. It was not clear when the interview was recorded.
“I feel really good. I feel very strong,” he said.
Trump isn’t sure where he caught the coronavirus.
“They had some big events at the White House and perhaps there,” he said. “I don’t really know. Nobody really knows for sure. Numerous people have contracted it, but you know people have contracted it all over the world. It’s highly contagious,” he said.
“That’s one thing you learned this is a contagious disease, and generally you get better from it but we also now have medicine that will help a lot,” he added.
The President said he’s not taking any coronavirus-related medications.
“We pretty much finished and now we’ll see how things go, but pretty much nothing,” he said. “We had our final doses of just about everything.”
