Trump ‘on the brink of ventilation’ when he had Covid-19

The then US President Donald Trump was there when he had contracted Covid-19 in October than was known to date, reports The New York Times. That paper is based on four sources that were familiar with Trumps condition.

The oxygen levels in Trumps blood would have fallen so much because of the lung virus that several officials in the White House feared that he would have to be put on artificial respiration. He was then taken to the military hospital Walter Reed for treatment.

According to insiders, Trump showed signs of pneumonia. There were spots in his lungs where fluid and bacteria were accumulating. These are considered as a sign indicating acute pneumonia caused by the coronavirus. Oxygen levels in Trumps blood dropped below 90 percent. If they are slightly above 90 percent, it already counts as a serious case of Covid-19.

At the

time it came out that Trump had fever and respiratory problems. It was unknown so far how severe the symptoms were, and how much White House employees had to talk to the president to get treated.

Initially, Trump didnt want to go to the military hospital. The prospect of being carried out in serious condition from the White House eventually persuaded him to be treated at Walter Reed Hospital.

Once in the hospital, Trumps practitioners sketch a rosy picture. Trump himself and sources around him denied that he was seriously ill.

By means of an experimental treatment, Trump finally came back on top. One of the funds received by the President, Regeneron, was not yet approved by the supervisor at that time, but was administered after White House officials had made efforts to do so.
