Trump's Doctor Seemingly Reveals the President Was Actually Diagnosed with COVID-19 on Wednesday

Donald Trump‘s doctor Sean Conley just participated in a press conference to update the American people on the president’s condition and now there are questions about the timeline of his coronavirus diagnosis.

“This morning the president is doing very well,” Conley said while beginning his remarks. “As reported yesterday, consultation with this group, I recommended we bring the President up to Walter Reed as a precautionary measure to provide state-of-the-art monitoring and any care that he may need.”

The next thing Conley said is what is raising questions. He said that Trump is “72 hours into the diagnosis,” which means that the president would have tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday morning. He didn’t reveal the diagnosis to the world until the early hours of Friday morning.

Trump flew to Minnesota and attended an event in Minneapolis on Wednesday evening. He also attended a donor event in New Jersey on Thursday, so many people might be at risk for having the virus despite Trump allegedly knowing about his diagnosis during those events.

UPDATE: The doctor released this statement: “This morning while summarizing the President’s health, I incorrectly used the term ‘seventy two hours’ instead of ‘day three’ and ‘forty eight hours’ instead of ‘day two’ with regards to his diagnosis and the administration of the polyclonal antibody therapy. The President was first diagnosed with COVID-19 on the evening of Thursday, October 1st and had received Regeneron’s antibody cocktail on Friday, October 2nd.”
