Pres. Trump Says He’s Now Immune to COVID-19, Despite CDC Caution
President Donald Trump’s doctors say he is continuing to improve following his bout with coronavirus and the president is even saying he is now immune.
In a memo Saturday, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said President Trump is no longer considered a transmission risk to others and does not need to self-isolate.
Then on Sunday, the president said during an with Fox News interview that he is now immune.
“And it looks like I’m immune for, I don’t know, maybe a long time, maybe a short time. It could be a lifetime, nobody really knows. But I’m immune.”
The CDC says there is evidence that it is less likely a patient will get re-infected. However, it has specifically cautioned people not to assume they are immune because immunity has “not yet been established.”
