He went on to tout the President’s improving health and noted he has been fever-free for well over 24 hours. Dr. Conley also said there are no signs of the virus replicating itself.
Regardless, the doctor added he will continue to monitor President Trump as he returns to a more active schedule this week.

For his part, the President has said he’s feeling great. On Twitter, he touted his immunity to the virus by saying, “I can’t get it and can’t give it.”
A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!
