Trump feeling better– USA President Donald Trump’s next few days are going to be a real test in his battle with the COVID 19 battle as the disease will test his immune system in the upcoming days.
On Saturday, Trump and his doctors informed that the upcoming days are going be important as the disease will enter what White House physician Dr. Sean Colony described as phase 2.
Trump is feeling better
A video statement is released by Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Saturday evening. In the video, Trump said, “I’m starting to feel good. You don’t know over the next period of a few days, I guess that’s the real test, so we will be seeing what happens over those next couple of days.”
The next few days are going to be crucial
According to the physicians, who have treated several patients of Coronavirus, The course of COVID 19 can be highly variable but the next three to five days are very important.
Several days after when the symptoms of Coronavirus start appearing, the body’s immune system must be in a condition to fight against the virus with precision or possibly face life-threatening results.
Dr. J. Randall Curtis, a professor of pulmonary and critical care at the University of Washington school of medicine in Seattle, informed An average timeframe for the patient decline is five to ten days after which person starts getting sick
On Saturday, Conley Said that Trump is on the third day of fighting against the virus.
The body’s immune response plays an important role
According to Dr. Greg Poland, director and founder of Mayo Clinic Vaccine Research Group, During the early days of the patient’s COVID 19 sickness, the body releases an agnostic immune response. At that time, the body does not know what it is fighting but realizes that something dangerous is happening. It is called the innate immune system.
For a successful recovery, the key is an immune response that targets Coronavirus by itself. And this type of immune response is known as the adaptive immune system.
Age is a risk factor
Melissa Nolan, who is an infectious disease expert and professor at the University of South Carolina, informed me that age is a risk factor. Older people are less successful in activating the adaptive immune response.
Trump is now 74 years old which suggests that he is 90 times more at the risk of death than some in their 20s, According to the data provided by US Centres of Disease Control and Prevention.
However, the course of COVID 19 is highly variable. The president VIP medical treatment and access to several therapies make the treatment and recovery of illness tougher to predict.
