US President Donald Trump said he will be leaving the military hospital, where he was being treated for Covid-19, and will continue his recovery at the White House.

In a tweet, Trump said he felt “better” than he did “20 years ago” and urged people to not be afraid of the novel coronavirus.

“Will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!,” Trump tweeted.

Donald Trump is expected to make the journey aboard the presidential helicopter, Marine One.

Trump’s return comes as the White House is still learning of the scale of the coronavirus outbreak within the complex. Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tested positive for the coronavirus Monday morning.

Earlier, White House officials said Trump was anxious to be released after three nights at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where doctors revealed on Sunday that his blood oxygen level had dropped suddenly twice in recent days and that they gave him a steroid typically only recommended for the very sick. Still, the doctors said Trump’s health was improving and he could be discharged as early as Monday to continue the remainder of his treatment at the White House.
