US President Donald Trump who recently contracted Covid-19 says he is feeling better and plans to return to work soon, according to Sputnik News Agency.

Trump, in a video released on Twitter, also thanked the doctors and medical professionals at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland where the clip appeared to have been recorded.

“I came here, wasn’t feeling so well, I feel much better now, we are working hard to get me all the way back,” he said.

“I’ll be back soon and I look forward to finishing up the campaign,” the president added, saying, “We are going to beat this coronavirus or whatever you’re gonna call it and we’re gonna beat it soundly.”

In the four-minute clip, he also thanked people for their support, saying he was fighting for all Americans.

“Over the next period of a few days I guess that’s the real test, so we’ll see what happens over that next couple of days,” Trump said.

He said he had been told to stay at the White House during the coronavirus pandemic but that he could not stay locked up because, as a leader, it was his duty to confront problems.

He also said said his wife Melania was feeling well as she was younger and young people tend to experience milder symptoms of Covid-19.

“I am also doing well and I think we’re going to have a very good result. Again, over the next few days we’re gonna probably know for sure,” Trump said, thanking people in the US and across the world for their words of support.

“The outpouring of love has been incredible, I will never forget.”

US Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell wrote on Twitter on Saturday that he had talked to Trump over the phone and that the president sounded “well”.

“Just had another great call with @POTUS. He sounds well and says he’s feeling good. We talked about the people’s business – fighting the pandemic, confirming Judge Barrett, and strengthening the economy for American families. Let’s keep our President & First Lady in our prayers,” McConnell said.

Earlier on Saturday, Trump thanked the staff at the Walter Reed Medical Center, saying that tremendous progress had been made over the past six months in fighting the coronavirus.

Trump departed for the medical centre on Friday after announcing on Twitter that he and his wife had tested positive for Covid-19.

White House physician Dr Sean Conley told a media briefing that the president was doing “very well” and was responding positively to treatment.

However, a source familiar with Trump’s health situation later told reporters that the president’s vital signs over the past 24 hours had been concerning.

The White House said on Friday that the US president was experiencing mild symptoms but was in good spirits and would continue working through the presidential election in November as well as remain on the presidential ballot.
