AGENCIES: US President Donald Trump has released a video released on Twitter on Saturday night where he said he was feeling “much better” after he tested positive for COVID-19. However, he also said that the next few days would be “the real test.”
The 74-year-old assured the public of his progress hours after a source with knowledge of the president’s condition had warned his vital signs were worrying, with the next 48 hours critical.
“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well,” said Trump, who is being treated at Walter Reed military medical center near Washington following his Covid-19 diagnosis.
“I feel much better now, we’re working hard to get me all the way back.”

The USA President said that he will be back soon to finish the campaign.
“I think I’ll be back soon and I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way it was started,” Trump said.
“We’ll be seeing what happens over those next couple of days,” Trump said, adding “I guess that’s the real test.”
The president added that he’d had “no choice” other than to work from his hospital suite rather than cocooning himself in his bedroom for his recovery.
