UPDATE: Trump says he is “starting to feel good” after being hospitalised | Thaiger

After being transferred to a military hospital a mere 17 hours after being diagnosed with Covid-19, US president Donald Trump says he is “starting to feel good” as the White House published pictures of him working from his hospital bed.

But his recent statement is contrary to some reports that his oxygen levels had ‘dropped rapidly’ with White House officials refusing to categorically confirm or deny whether he was put on supplemental oxygen. The White House physician, Sean Conley, has also refused to disclose the President’s temperature.

“I’d rather not give any specific numbers but he, but he did have a fever, Thursday into Friday, and since Friday morning, he’s had none.”

However, an unnamed source, who is familiar with the President’s health says that “the President’s vitals over 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.”

The news comes yesterday of another close aid, Nicholas Luna, testing positive for the virus, while Vice President Mike Pence and second lady Karen Pence have tested negative. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has reportedly cancelled appearances in Florida citing a need to be cautious.

Previously, Trump’s aide Hope Hicks tested positive for the virus as well as First Lady Melania Trump, former White House Counsellor Kellyanne Conway, GOP Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, GOP Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, the Rev. John Jenkins, the president of Notre Dame University, and a White House reporter.

Trump has been hospitalised at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The White House doctor says he is being treated with an experimental drug cocktail Regeneron’s REGN-COV2, one that US Infectious Disease Chief Dr. Anthony Fauci says has shown “promising results”.

Trump was first diagnosed with the virus on Thursday via a rapid test after returning from a New Jersey fundraiser. He then took a PCR test, which also confirmed the rapid test results.

    After 48 hours of media speculation, he “had trouble breathing”, “is on oxygen”, “knew he was infected before the debate”, he appeared to be doing just fine in an TV address this morning. Is it any wonder why 60% of Americans have little to no faith in the media these days?

    I hope his recovery proves once and for all that COVID is not a serious threat to most people, and that this will be the beginning of the end of the great COVID panic.

      “I hope his recovery proves once and for all that COVID is not a serious threat to most people, and that this will be the beginning of the end of the great COVID panic”

      How, exactly, would his recovery (or not) do that one way or the other?

        His recovery would be the most prominent example that anyone–even a 74 year old, obese, fast food junkie like Trump–can recovery from the big scary virus.

        But I’m not optimistic. Keeping the fear level elevated is a life or death struggle for the media and establishment. If people figure out that there’s nothing to be afraid of before a vaccine, then the media’s credibility will take a massive hit, as will the establishment. Not very likely to be reelected if it turns out you caused an economic depression over a flu spook…

          Many other 74y old obese junk food addicts would by now be in the ICU fighting for their life. Comparing covid with flu is very irresponsible because scientific proof cannot be refuted. Many people who survive, also young healthy folk with mild symptoms have lasting effects as reduced lung capacity, tiredness and heart problems. Thats a fact, And be careful cause people who think like you -that its a hoax or conspiracy- tend to take risks and get infected. Like Trump, but then without the presidential care… good luck with that

            “Comparing covid with flu is very irresponsible.”

            Cold/flu is not a scientific classification. There are dozens of viruses that cause cold/flu illnesses, the coronavirus family among them. All of them are more dangerous for elderly people. Most of them are more deadly in the first year or two. This one seems pretty much on par with the H1N1 outbreak in 1957 or the H3N2 outbreak in 1968. None of them have been eradicated. We live with all of them thanks almost entirely to our immune systems.

            “scientific proof cannot be refuted.”

            This is about the least scientific claim you could make. This sort of rhetoric is a red flag, and we should treat people making such claims with the greatest of skepticism, Fauci among them.

            “Many people who survive, also young healthy folk with mild symptoms have lasting effects as reduced lung capacity, tiredness and heart problems. ”

            Is it typical for young, healthy people to have long-lasting effects, or are you just cherry picking worse case scenarios?

      Average covid 74year olds whose oxygen saturation drops fast end up in ICU. If they survive they are left with a million dollar bill and will never regain full strength either and remain partly handicapped. The president had a level of care that normal people will never get. Received cloned antibodies and remdesivir very early in the disease. You can forget about that yourself, so no, the reasons for average people to fear covid remain valid.

        My 72 yr old sister and her 46 yr old very healthy son (fire fighter) in the USA both died of the virus. Of course they did not receive the level of medical care that POTASS did. For the general population the hospitals are overwelmed and staff and supplies are limited. So yes the regular people should remain fearfull. I’m glad to be here in Thailand where they took the virus seriously right from the start and continue to so, thank you!

        Most American’s over 65 are covered by Medicare…

        Average people are not 74 years old, nor as unhealthy as the cases you describe.

        Today WHO estimated that 10% of the global population has contracted covid.

        1 million / 780 million = 0.13% fatality rate

        Enough is enough. It’s not scary. What’s scary is the wanton destruction of young people’s lives.

    There is no evidence that he ever was infected indeed.
    This guy is a compulsive liar. One can suspect that he made up
    this supposed contagion to make his point about the cure.
    One should not forget that he claimed he was prepared to do
    ANYTHING to be reelected.

Condolences from Thailand to UK on Prince Philip’s death | Thaiger

The leaders of Thailand have sent messages of condolences to their British counterparts following the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh on Friday. His Majesty King Vajiralongkorn of Thailand has sent a message of condolence to Prince Philip’s widow, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, released by the Thai Royal Household Bureau, stating that the King and Queen are deeply saddened by Prince Philip’s death.

“We all in Thailand join the people of Great Britain in mourning this great loss, a sense of loss being shared by peoples around the world, whose lives have been touched and enriched by His Royal Highness’ enduring legacies in their diversity.

We still recall, with much pride and warmth, the two historic state visits made by Your Majesty in 1972 and 1996, with His Royal Highness at your side, as guests of my beloved father, His late Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Just as important to the people of Thailand was how His Royal Highness wished, during his later visits on behalf of the World Wildlife Fund, to share with them his love of nature and passion for the environment, thus inspiring a number of essential projects of conservation.

May I, on behalf of the people of Thailand, express to Your Majesty, the Royal Family and the British people our heartfelt sympathy and condolences for this truly grievous loss.”

Meanwhile, PM Prayut Chan-o-cha released a statement on behalf of the people of Thailand, saying their thoughts and prayers were with the people of Britain. PM Prayut sent a message to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson praising Prince Philip’s “exceptional leadership”.

“On behalf of the Royal Thai Government and the people of Thailand, I wish to extend to Your Right Honourable and the British people our deepest condolences and sympathy for this irreparable loss. We join the British people in mourning the loss of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts and prayers are with the British people in this time of sadness”

Prince Philip, who was married to Queen Elizabeth II for 73 years, died Friday at the age of 99 after recently being released from King Edward VII Hospital recovering from a February surgery for a heart condition. He was the longest-serving consort in British history. The Duke of Edinburgh had visited Thailand twice, escorting the Queen for state visits with King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 1972 and 1996.
