COVID-19: Trump recovering ‘very well’  – doctors
* Cardiac, kidney functioning well
* Tweets from hospital

Contrary to the wishes of the ‘naysayers’ over the condition of US President Donald Trump, his doctors have expressed optimism over his recovery rate, saying that the President is “doing  very well”.
This is as the President who loves tweeting has tweeted from his hospital bed  on Saturday, acknowledging the global  outpouring of  goodwill for his quick recovery.
Some of the world leaders and individuals who wished Trump quick recovery include Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu; British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson; Indian Prime Minister, Canadian President, plus Steve Oko of Wawa News Global, a die hard fan of the US President.
Donald Trump is doing “very well” in his hospital treatment for Covid-19, his medics said Saturday.
An update on his health obtained by Wawa News Global indicated that “Trump is up and walking, has been fever free for 24 hours and his cough, nasal congestion and fatigue are improving,” said his doctor,  Sean Conley.
 President Trump who tested positive after the US Presidential debate  was admitted to Walter Reed Military Medical Center Friday.
“Going well, I think! Thank you to all. Love!!!” Trump said in his first tweet from the hospital late Friday.
“Trump is not receiving extra oxygen” his doctor added, thus  deflating speculations that he was on oxygen.
“We have monitored his cardiac function, his kidney function, liver function. All of those are normal,” another member of the medical team, Sean Dooley said.
Soon after Trump arrived at hospital, Conley said in a memo that the President was starting a course of therapeutic drug remdesivir and had received an eight-gram dose of an experimental polyclonal antibody cocktail.
Conley would not put a “hard date” on Trump’s discharge from hospital or disclose the president’s temperature.
Amid the rosy assessment from the White House, more people close to the president disclosed they have tested positive for the coronavirus.
– Trump trailing –
The latest is campaign advisor Chris Christie, who was among several aides that helped Trump prepare for the first presidential debate that have since announced positive tests.
Three senators as well as Trump’s campaign manager and other senior aides are among a growing list from the president’s orbit to have contracted the virus, with at least seven confirmed cases tied to an event in the White House Rose Garden last weekend.
Among the unknowns were the prospects for two remaining presidential debates and whether the president will have to yield power temporarily to Vice President Mike Pence if his condition worsens.
“Going well, I think! Thank you to all. Love!!!” Trump said in his first tweet from the hospital late Friday.
He had walked out of the White House under his own steam wearing a mask.
Meanwhile,  a third Republican senator, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, announced on Saturday that he had tested positive.
Similarly, former White House top Aide Kellyanne Conway and Trump’s campaign manager, 42-year-old Bill Stepien, have contracted the novel coronavirus.
Two other Republican senators — Thom Tillis of North Carolina and Mike Lee of Utah, have also tested positive, a development that is raising concern over Trump’s chances at the November 3 crucial US presidential poll expected to be won by the President.
The latter two sit on the chamber’s Judiciary Committee, which is slated to hold hearings for Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s conservative nominee to fill a vacant seat on the Supreme Court.
Public health experts have expressed alarm at the number of cases that appear linked to a celebration of Barrett’s nomination at the Rose Garden on September 26.
At least seven people who attended have now tested positive, including Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, Conway, Tillis, Lee and University of Notre Dame President John Jenkins.
Trump’s main challenger, Democrats’ Joe Biden now finds himself alone on the campaign trail — and able to argue that his more cautious approach to Covid-19 has been vindicated.
Biden has made Trump’s frequent downplaying of the pandemic and mixed messaging on mask-wearing a central campaign theme, while Trump has tried to shift the narrative to areas where  the economy where he has unarguablely done very well.
The former Vice president, who stood on a stage with Trump for 90 minutes during their ill-tempered first debate Tuesday, announced that he and his wife Jill tested negative Friday.
Underlining his sudden advantage in the bitter race, Biden, 77, traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan on Friday, going ahead with a previously scheduled campaign stop.
