Trump says he no longer has COVID-19, doesn’t say if he tested negative

CLOSE

The Commission on Presidential Debates cancels the second presidential debate planned for Miami, following President Trump’s refusal to take part in a virtual format.

USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump claimed Sunday he no longer has COVID-19 even though the White House refuses to say whether he has tested negative for the disease.

Just hours after his physician issued a memo saying he is no longer “a transmission risk” to others, Trump said in an interview on Fox News that he no longer has the disease and suggested he is now immune to the coronavirus.

Trump did not say in that interview whether he has tested negative for COVID-19. The memo issued late Saturday by his physician, Dr. Sean Conley, didn’t address that issue either. 

Later Sunday, in an audio message to supporters, Trump claimed he has tested “totally negative” for COVID-19, going beyond the public memos released

White House doctor says Trump can emerge from isolation, doesn’t specify test results

White House physician Dr. Sean Conley released a memo Saturday night saying President Trump is “no longer considered a transmission risk” and is safe to come out of isolation more than a week after he first tested positive for the coronavirus.

Conley didn’t reveal much more information than that, but he said the decision was based off Trump’s Saturday morning “COVID PCR sample.” That doesn’t mean the president tested negative for COVID-19, but Conley said, “there is no longer evidence of actively replicating virus.” Trump is also reportedly still fever-free and all other symptoms have “improved,” but Conley didn’t say if he was still exhibiting any.

There’s nothing particularly out of the ordinary about Conley’s announcement — as CNN notes, research has shown PCR tests can come back positive for COVID-19 patients even when they’re no longer infectious, because they can still pick up pieces of the virus’ genetic material

Although President Donald Trump has expanded an offshore drilling moratorium to federal waters off North Carolina, conservation groups are concerned coastal environments could still be endangered by seismic testing.

The U.S. Department of Justice said in a court filing last week that moratoriums against drilling off of North Carolina and other Southeastern states do not prevent companies from conducting seismic testing, a method of mapping oil and natural gas deposits under the ocean floor by blasting loud noises from an array of air guns.. But in an interview with the News & Observer, U.S. Secretary of the Interior
