Conley said Saturday that the first lady is “doing great” and there’s no indication she needs any advanced therapy to treat COVID-19.
The first lady, who is 50, has a “mild cough and headache,” Conley reported on Friday.
“Thank you for the love you are sending our way,” Trump tweeted following the diagnosis. “I have mild symptoms but overall feeling good. I am looking forward to a speedy recovery.”
Trump’s symptoms have been labeled “mild.” She is believed to be isolating at the White House.
Conley said President Donald Trump is doing “very well” as he spends the weekend at a military hospital for treatment of COVID-19.
“He’s in exceptionally good spirits,” said another doctor, Sean Dooley.
