Everything is much more complicated: Trump's COVID-19 was much more serious than the president said
In October 2020 years Donald Trump is sick with COVID-19 much more than the White House publicly admitted at the time. Some officials were worried that he would need to be ventilated. The edition told in more detail The Guardian.
Trump had "extremely low blood oxygen levels" and lung problems associated with COVID-19 pneumonia, according to data New York Times citing four people familiar with the state of the 45th president.
In early October, Trump was taken to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for days after being diagnosed with the virus, less than a month before the presidential election. At the time, a White House release described the 74-year-old president as "tired but in a good mood."
Dr. Sean Conley, the personal physician tasked with treating the President of the United States, has been widely criticized for his vague statements about Trump's condition the day after he was admitted to the hospital, including when answering questions about the president's condition and oxygen levels. Conley was upbeat, saying Trump was "doing well" and "no cause for concern."
However, the Times reports that officials found Trump's prognosis so alarming before he was admitted to the hospital that they worried that he would have to be ventilated. Two people familiar with Trump's condition said the president had infiltrates in his lungs, which could be a sign of severe illness in COVID-19 patients.
Trump's blood oxygen levels were also reported to be a cause for concern, as he dropped to 80 - well below 90, which is considered a sign of serious illness.
Doctors rebuked Trump for organizing unexpected visit to supporters outside the military medical center two days after he was placed for treatment... At least two secret service agents were seen in the car that accompanied Trump on the short trip.
Then James Phillips, an attending physician at the hospital, called the trick "madness."

Trump, who has repeatedly undermined and downplayed the severity of the pandemic and the growing death toll, at times assumed his own recovery was proof that the virus did not pose as much of a threat as public health officials posed.
Returning to the White House after illness, Trump told his supporters: “We will defeat the coronavirus ... As your leader, I had to do it. I knew it was dangerous, but I had to do it. I stood in front and led. "
Soon after Trump's recovery, the United States entered the deadliest stage of the pandemic. More than 27 million people have been infected and 474 have died in the United States alone, which is by far the highest casualty rate of any country in the world.
