Trump's Covid-19 condition was so concerning that doctors considered putting him on a ventilator, source confirms

Former President Donald Trump’s condition after testing positive for Covid-19 became so concerning last October that there was talk of putting him on a ventilator, according to what Trump told one person at the time.

The detail raises questions about whether the former President’s condition was worse than officials were willing to publicly acknowledge, a development first reported in detail by the New York Times 木曜日.
CNN reported in October that when Trump was flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, he not only had trouble breathing, but had received supplemental oxygen. トランプ “definitely has had oxygen,” the source with knowledge told CNN.
The former President’s physician, 博士. Sean Conley, waffled on the issue at the time, saying Trumpis not on oxygen right now.When he was asked if Trump had received it at all, Conley would not directly answer, 言って, “He has not needed any this morning, today at all.Asked if he had ever on been on supplemental oxygen as part of his Covid-19 treatment, Conley said, “Right now he is not,” 追加する, “昨日と今日, he was not on oxygen.
    The New York Times also reported that Trump was found to have lung infiltrates, “which occur when the lungs are inflamed and contain substances such as fluid or bacteria. Their presence, especially when a patient is exhibiting other symptoms, can be a sign of an acute case of the disease. They can be easily spotted on an X-ray or scan, when parts of the lungs appear opaque, or white.
      The Times added that Trump’s oxygen level dipped into the 80s. Conley was repeatedly evasive with reporters about his condition and whether he was on given oxygen, only telling reporters once his levels had recovered that they had never been in thelow 80s.
      マークメドウズ, who was Trump’s White House chief of staff, had gathered reporters following a rosy medical briefing delivered by Conley and told them privately, “The President’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care. We are still not on a clear path to a full recovery. ”
