On Friday afternoon, Dr. Sean P. Conley, the president’s physician, released an update on the president’s condition.
“Following PCR-confirmation of the President’s diagnosis, as a precautionary measure he received a single 8-gram dose of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody cocktail,” a memo released Friday afternoon by Dr. Sean P. Conley, the president’s physician, stated. “He completed the infusion without incident.”
“In addition tot he polyclonal antibodies, the President has been taking zinc, Vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and a daily aspirin,” Conley said.
“He’s being evaluated by a team of experts, and together we’ll be making recommendations to the President and First Lady in regards to next best steps,” Conley said.
Conley added that the first lady “remains well with only a mild cough and headache, and the remainder of the First Family are well and tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 today.”

He has continued to hold jam-packed, largely maskless rallies.
He and the W.H. have played down the threat, refused to abide by basic public health guidelines for months. pic.twitter.com/abf98nJqss
