Trump left a military hospital and entered ‘uncharted territory’

President Trump left a high-level medical center Monday evening, citing privacy laws and the fact that they were entering “uncharted territory” – while doctors continued to withhold information that could brighten the president’s diagnosis to recover from Kovid-19.
It is unclear whether Trump or his doctors are calling for shots to appear under control in the weeks leading up to the presidential race, especially as members of his medical team at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center continue to cherry-pick what they share. He said his oxygen levels were normal and he had no fever, but refused to answer questions about the results of lung lung scans, his last negative test for coronavirus or why he was taking the steroid dexamethasone, which is usually assigned to patients with serious illness.
The president returns to the White House in a moment filled with recovery – before he escapes from a time when some patients knew he was crashing.
